Lizzie Velasquez is an amazing motivational speaker and author. Being bullied growing up for her rare condition that makes it unable for her to gain weight inspired her to make her voice heard. Lizzie joins Deanna and Emily in studio to discuss how her TED talk on “How Do You Define Yourself” lead to the creation of the documentary “A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story,” the Safe Schools Improvement Act, and how using social media can be a supportive way to help the issue of bullying in schools.
