In December she inspired millions with her TED Talk.
Now 25-year-old Lizzie Velasquez, once called "the world's ugliest woman," hopes to reach an even-wider audience through an anti-bullying documentary about her story.
Velasquez has a rare disease that makes it impossible for her to gain weight. The Austin native has never weighed more than 64 pounds and is blind in one eye.
She told The Associated Press, during a recent interview at a coffee shop in Austin, that the idea is for people to see the documentary and realize - yes, it is possible to overcome everything.
She's raising money for the film, tentatively titled "The Lizzie Project," through a Kickstarter campaign that ends May 31st.
The trailer can be seen at TheLizzieProject.com.
