"After spending years wanting to look like everyone else, I realized I needed to love and accept myself just as I am. When I stopped listening to other people and started making a life for myself, I discovered my purpose in life, my passion. Is someone or something hurting you? Are you feeling alone or lonely? Afraid? Misunderstood? Do you wish even just one person would listen to you? Do you have a decision to make and need help choosing a path? I want to give you the tools to figure out what to do about each of those problems." —Lizzie Velasquez, Be Beautiful, Be You

When an Internet video calling her "The World’s Ugliest Woman" went viral, Lizzie Velasquez set out to discover what truly makes us beautiful. Now she shares what she learned on that faith-filled journey.

In Be Beautiful, Be You, Lizzie uses anecdotes and exercises to teach readers to recognize their own unique gifts and blessings, talk to God in their own words, deal with disappointment, make and maintain healthy friendships, and set realistic goals. 

In a world filled with airbrushed celebrity photos and plastic surgery, Lizzie Velasquez is a refreshing force of nature whose story will inspire anyone who has ever felt singled out, misunderstood, or afraid—and who hasn’t?

I just saw this young lady and her friend on the Doctors program. Ms. Velasquez has a lot of strength and beauty. Anyone with an open heart can learn from her and this book. What she has gone though and is achieving is amazing. The book crosses all ages and can help you make a positive change in your life. Thank you, Ms. Velasquez for writing your book and bringing it to the masses. D.W.

In Be Beautiful, Be You, Lizzie describes how she overcame crushing remarks from bullies - including an online video that called her "The World's Ugliest Woman." Then she shows you how to create a vision for your life and focus on it until you have a life you love. She explains why you've got to know your own capabilities and coaches you to persevere with faith and the support of good friends and family. Every teenager will hear negative remarks and even be bullied during their school years. Lizzie can give your teen armor against these hurts and help him or her build powerful self-confidence.

Lizzie wrote the book when she was 23 so the books mood suits to people around that age. If ur 30 and older it kind of blunts the impact a book like this could bring about. It is inspiring and must read for teenagers who suffer from crisis in that age.
