Texas Student Gains Global Attention by Speaking Out against Bullying
A South Texas college student is making a big difference by speaking out against bullying. That message is not only spreading quickly but she’s gaining a large audience all across the globe.
When describing Texas State University senior Lizzie Velasquez, the word small might be an understatement.
“I’m 23 years old and I’ve never weighed over 61—61 pounds in my entire life,” said Velasquez.
If you think that’s small, Lizzie was born 6 weeks early at less than three pounds. Doctors said she can’t produce adipose tissue, or body fat.
