"My #secretproject is revealed!!! IM MAKING A DOCUMENTARY!!! I'm even taking YOU along the ride with me!! ITS ALL HAPPENING!!!!," Velasquez posted on FB.
In 2007, Velasquez discovered a YouTube video posted by a bully who labeled her as the ugliest woman and after days went by she decided to stand up and expectedly became one of the most respected and well known motivational speakers against bullying. She overcame the bullying by grabbing the bull by the horns and turned all the negative comments into a positive national campaign against bullying.
She always wished to accomplish three things in her life time, graduate from college, be an author and become a motivational speaker. Velasquez accomplished all three and is now making the Lizzie Project, a self documentary about her life.
One of her YouTube speaking motivational video's "How Do You Define Yourself" received more than 5.6M views, which has been translated into multiple languages.
