How Do You Define Yourself?




Meet  Lizzie Velasquez.  She has a condition that is so rare only one other person in the world has it.  She cannot gain weight.  She has never weighed more than 54 pounds.  She looks at her disability as a stepping stone rather than a stumbling block and asks her audience questions to make us think how we use our negative situations to our benefit rather than our defeat.

I hope you enjoy this video and are challenged by this young woman who will definitely make you think.  She is not asking for pity, quite the opposite as she encourages you to see your circumstances in proper perspective.  She asks the question "How do you define yourself?"  Not  "How do others define you?"
