Jonathan Novick has achondroplastic dwarfism. Growing up in a small town, he had only a few negative experiences as a result of his disorder. But after he moved to New York, these negative experiences became much more frequent. So he created this video.
“I wanted to stop telling people what happened to me, and I wanted to start showing people what happened to me. I wanted to show everyone what a day in my life was like,” he states in the clip.
Through online video, Jonathan is sharing his story in the hopes of affecting change in the way we perceive others.
However, he isn’t out to tell people what to do, he just has a simple request: “The next time you see someone who is different than you, think about what their day might be like.”
What part of their day do you want to be?
