At just 25 years old, Lizzie Velasquez is already a motivational speaker, an author and the subject of an upcoming documentary about her life. She was also once called "the ugliest woman in the world" and told by countless online bullies that she should just go kill herself.

Well, Lizzie didn't kill herself and we would argue that she's one of the most beautiful people in the world. Once you see her strength, her courage and her heart, we don't think you'll disagree.

Lizzie was born with a syndrome so rare, there are only two other people in the world who have been diagnosed with the condition. In short, she is unable to gain weight and has never weighed more than 64 pounds in her entire life. She is also blind in her right eye, has limited vision in the other and her immune system is very weak.

Still, none of that has stopped the little tiny woman that could from becoming the powerhouse that she is today. Through her quest to raise awareness and put a stop to bullying, Lizzie has inspired so many people that a group launched a Kickstarter campaign to make a movie about her life - and guess what? They've already exceeded their goal!

The film will show how Lizzie managed to beat the online bullies in the best way possible, by finding the strength in herself to KNOW that they were wrong about her. The film also aims to further Lizzie's mission of inspiring a more positive online experience for everyone.

If you don't know much about Lizzie, her experience or her extremely admirable endeavor, we highly suggest watching the clip below, which has already been viewed over 5 million times on YouTube. When we first saw it last year, it took us about three seconds to fall totally in love with Lizzie.

We can't wait to see the full-length documentary on this fun and incredibly inspiring woman.
