In December 2013, she inspired millions with her TED Talk. Now Lizzie Velasquez, once called “the world’s ugliest woman,” hopes to reach an even-wider audience through an anti-bullying documentary about her story.

“I know what it is to be bullied and what is to be bullied online, and I want to be the protector of those who think it won’t get better,” said Velasquez, 25, who has a rare disease that makes it impossible for her to gain weight. She has never weighed more than 64 pounds and is blind in one eye.
