The "World's Ugliest Woman" is turning a message of hate into love, in a beautiful way.

Lizzie Velasquez, 25, of Austin, is one of three people in the world with an unknown condition that causes accelerated aging as well as fat loss from the face and body. She's never weighed more than 70 pounds.

When she was in high school, she stumbled across a YouTube video with millions of views. It was titled "World's Ugliest Woman" and it was about her.

In a TED talk earlier this year, Lizzie told the audience how the title affected her, but yet, she was determined to fight back. With that comes The Lizzie Project, an anti-bullying documentary that tells Lizzie's inspirational story.

The Project has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and this summer Lizzie will be promoting her movie and inspiring people to love, not hate.
