The girl’s weight is far from generally accepted, which has repeatedly become a cause for ridicule. However, when the ill-wishers happen to see Lizzy on stage, they can’t believe this girl is capable of achieving.

Howell became famous across the globe after a video with her impressive ballet steps was published on the internet. Lizzy easily twirled eleven fouettés in a row and performed a series of pirouettes.

Because Howell is unlike her peers, she often has to face criticism. However, the girl tries not to pay attention to such negative exclamations and continues to engage in her favorite activity to which she has already dedicated more than 10 years.

Lizzy isn’t the only one who challenges prejudice and busts stereotypes. Earlier, we wrote about the 67-year-old Greta Pontareli, who proved that it is never too late to do pole dancing.
