人物介绍

 

利兹·维拉斯奎兹(LizzieVelasquez)

 

被称作"全世界最丑的女人",面对流言和一次一次的打击,她决定站起来。微笑,走向积极的一面。她还以此罕见经历著书,在TED上发表了演讲:《一颗勇敢的心:丽兹·维拉斯奎兹的故事》。

 

这名来自美国的26岁女孩丽兹·维拉斯奎兹被称为"世界上最丑的女人",由于她患有一种怪病,导致她每天吃60餐还是骨瘦如柴,尽管现在是20多岁,但是皮肤皱巴的她看起来就像一个老太婆再加上身材过度纤细以至于有点畸形,常常遭到旁人的歧视与嘲笑。

 

现年26岁的利兹出生时早产了4周,体重不到1公斤,她患上了罕见的马凡氏综合征和脂肪代谢障碍。身高1.57米的利兹天生"零脂肪",体重只有不到30公斤。

 

现在的利兹已经能够坦然面对旁人的讥笑嘲讽,对大街上的异样眼神,她开始走到对方面前,向对方赠送名片打招呼,"嗨,我是利兹,请你不要再盯着我看了"。

 

评价

 

她说如果有人对她粗暴无理,她只是简单地让那些人站在自己的右边。她同时说自己很乐意成为减肥中心或者是健身馆中的特殊案例。她要求观众考虑是什么定义了他们自己。

 

励志故事

 

一天吃60顿也长不胖的怪病

1989年3月13日,丽兹出生于得克萨斯州奥斯汀市。她早产4周,出生时只有1.19公斤。医生吃惊地发现,当时子宫内保护丽兹的羊水已经少到了极限,他们也不明白丽兹是怎样幸存下来的。丽兹2岁时,她只有6.8公斤,相当于一个5个月大婴儿的平均体重。

 

丽兹的两个姐妹玛莉娜和克里斯的身高体重都很正常。丽兹的脑部、骨骼和内脏器官发育正常,但从小就很瘦小,却始终找不出病因。据称,丽兹并非得了厌食症,她患有马凡氏综合征(先天性中胚层发育不良)及脂肪代谢障碍,这一罕见症状在全球只有3例。

 

医生鼓励丽兹吃大量脂肪、碳水化合物和糖。2013年,21岁的丽兹一天要吃60顿饭,每隔15分钟就要吃一餐,每天摄入5000到8000卡路里,但就是长不胖。当时,她的体重只有25公斤,相当于8岁女童的重量,体脂几近为零。

 

丽兹她说:"我常常称体重,只要能增加1磅,就很兴奋。"

 

无意被人偷拍上网

17岁时,丽兹·维拉斯克兹一次无意地在视频网站上看到一段名为"世上最丑的女人"的视频,没有想到的是,点开视频之后,发现里面的人物正是自己,这是一段才8秒的视频,然而点击量高达400万次。

 

"我非常震惊,"丽兹回忆说,"等我读网友写的评论,我的胃开始翻搅疼痛。"有网友写着,"为什么父母要生下她?""用火烧死她!"、"她应该自杀",诸如此类的评论让丽兹很伤心,"我哭了好几个晚上,身为一个才十几岁的女孩,我以为我的人生已经结束了,"丽兹说,"我不能跟任何人谈这件事,我没有告诉任何朋友,我只是很震惊发生这种事。"

 

父母朋友给她信心

实际上,丽兹·维拉斯克兹早已习惯被欺负--当她开始上幼儿园时,她的同学一见到她就怕。据悉,她天生患有马凡氏综合症(先天性中胚层发育不良)及脂肪代谢障碍,因此身高157厘米的她,体重只有约26公斤。

 

此外,丽兹右眼完全失明,还有其他许多生理缺陷,比如骨质密度疏松、免疫系统低下等等,频繁进出医院就像是她的日常生活。

 

丽兹坦言,自己出生时,体重只有1.2公斤,当医生告诉她的双亲不知道她会活多久时,她的父母还是决定带女儿回家。正是因为父母的这种态度,才给予她勇敢面对的信心。而每当知道她被欺负时,她的父母也总是告诉她,微笑是最好的回应。

 

现致力反欺凌

丽兹决定做点事来改变。她开始建立自己的网络视频频道,让人们知道"世界最丑的女人"的真正人生,教人对自己的外貌要有自信,她的频道订阅人数超过三十万。

 

此外,她以自身经历,致力拓展反欺凌工作,不仅通过到处演讲激励别人,还游说美国国会议员通过首项反欺凌法案。

 

她更是完成长达80分钟的纪录片《勇敢的心》,在德克萨斯州首映,让更多人得知她的故事。该片的导演莎拉·荷西波尔多表示,这不只是丽兹的故事,这是一个世界上许多被欺凌的人共同的经历,并告诉人们"我不会成为一个受害者,我要去做点改变。"

 

拍纪录片讲述励志故事

丽兹的经历被拍成纪录片《勇敢的心:维拉斯克兹的故事》(ABraveHeart:TheLizzieVelasquezStory),该片总时长78分钟。3月14日,该纪录片在得克萨斯州奥斯汀举行的西南偏南电影节首映,丽兹本人也在电影节现身。

 

"为了让更多人了解我的故事,我决定拍下这部纪录片,在网上与其他被欺凌者互勉,教他们重拾自信。"丽兹说道,"我希望我的经历能影响更多人,希望他们走出影院后,能真正感受到自我,为自己代言。"

 

下面是世界上最丑女人维拉斯奎兹的部分演讲内容,幽默但充满励志。

 

 

“从我出生的那一刻起

医生就叫我父母不要期待任何事

他们说我将不停地哭

他们说我永远不会说话

永远不会走路

永远不会爬

他们说我将做不了任何事”

 

“而我的妈妈说,我要带她回家,尽我们所能爱她,抚养她。”

 

她要求观众考虑是什么定义了他们自己。是他们的背景,朋友,还是家庭?她提醒人们要找到内心真正的幸福与快乐,并让自己成为自己人生的向导。而恃强凌弱的人最终只会无地自容。

 

"我曾经的生活的确非常困难,但是那没有关系,"她说。"我会让我的目标,我的成功,以及我的造诣定义我,而不是我的外表。"

 

"thebestrevengeiswithyouraccomplishments",既然我们出身比较幸运,那我们还有什么理由不努力呢?
