Living with this rare syndrome I know first hand what it's like to be bullied. But I will be the first to say there is hope and it does get better! -Lizzie

If all people were like her, strong, determined and beautiful, yes, she's a really beautiful person, and her personality completely shines brighter than what anyone can say about her image, the world would be so much better. I'm truly inspired by her, and her conference about "what defines you" really made me change every bad thought that I had about myself. I don't know if Lizzie will ever see this, but if she does: "Lizzie, I believe that everyone can make a diference with what they have or by who they are, and I think I can speak by a lot of people when I say that I'm happy you followed your dreams and spread your notion of life, because it helped a lot of people find theirs. Thank you Lizzie.".

You know what, I don't understand why people make fun of her, there's nothing wrong with her if you seriously look at her. She's a beautiful women, inside AND out. People just have the wrong visual on what 'beauty on the outside is'.  Like for me she's beautiful but for someone else she could not be, but I assure you, if you don't find her beautiful then that's your loss as she's very beautiful.  People need to change their meaning of beautiful as they're missing out on actual beautiful people.

Courageous, Bold, Kind, Forgiving, Sweet, Lovable, Sincere, Totally Selfless, Inspirational, Convicting, Heavenly, Well Balanced, Astounding, 1 in a Billion, A Great Example, Simply Beautiful!! Thank you Lizzie!
The world of sheep we live in...one person believes she is the ugliest woman on earth...the rest of the uneducated, disrespectful, spoiled, and closed minded people follow and start participating in a competition to see who could stoop the lowest and say the most horrible thing. Sounds like they stooped so low, the hole they dug is too deep for them to make their lives any better. However for the people like me who are here to show their support and respect for this amazing woman, I'm very optimistic about the great future we will have especially if we remember the inspiring and sincere things she tells us.
+RandomHelpingGuy The shepherd is also the media and our society's perspective of what is considered to be "good" "normal" "attractive" etc...many people follow others in putting this beautiful woman down, claiming her to be "the ugliest woman" and many other horrible things...I don't consider that a means to success...I consider it to the reflection of how inhumane our society is becoming.
Our shepherd is the government, and they are the rulers of their respective countries. Tell me what's wrong with being a sheep if it means success.

I cried the entire video. I was bullied in middle school and I tried to commit suicide... but if someone who has so many reasons to get down on themselves, with such intense bullying that you went through, could smile, and turn it around the way you did... there is no reason i couldn't have been stronger I only wish I had found this channel back then. You are truly my hero. You are a beautiful and inspirational individual and I thank God for putting you on this Earth, because you and your story are going to save lives. Thanks you so much <3
