Lizzy Howell is being hailed an inspiration and role model for all because of her full figure.

“There are not very many plus-sized dancers in the dance community,” she told Inside Edition. “They are all very tall and lean. And I haven't seen very many dancers my size do what I do.”

She said she has spent about two-and-a-half years trying to master the moves and “I’ve finally gotten to the point where I can do them. “

She added: “I've had people tell me I won't get very far in dance because of the way I look. I've had doctors tell me I shouldn't be dancing because of my joints and other issues.”
