Kelowna’s Amnesty International group will show the film A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasques Story.

This documentary is about a young woman born with a syndrome that makes it very difficult for her to gain weight who, at 17, discovers on YouTube that she has been declared the world’s ugliest woman.

She fights back by setting up her own YouTube channel which grows to over 450,000 subscribers, promoting kindness and self-esteem.

 

She becomes an internationally acclaimed motivational speaker and travels to Washington, D.C. to lobby on behalf of the Safe Schools Improvement Act with the aim of legislating bullying.

On Saturday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 14, First United Church hall, 721 Bernard Avenue, admission to the film is by donation.
