Brandon Farbstein          

Dwarfism Activist, Author & Motivational Speaker

Brandon Farbstein is a 21 year old renowned speaker, Gen Z activist and author who inspires millions of people across the globe with his universal message of living life on your own terms and building the framework for self-acceptance.

Diagnosed with a rare form of dwarfism at the age of 2 (metatropic dysplasia), Farbstein has turned his life experience of suffering, isolation, and victimhood into empowerment, impact and influence. After a severe battle with cyberbullying in high school, he decided to share his story- to both offer hope and to enact change. Farbstein was the driving force behind two new pieces of legislation that were signed into law in Virginia, one on bullying prevention and the other requiring empathy and emotional intelligence to be taught in all K-12 classrooms across the state.

Farbstein has partnered on campaigns with UNICEF and the United Nations to help end violence in schools worldwide, Hewlett Packard to empower authentic connection, and K-SWISS to promote positivity & optimism in overcoming adversity.

Whether sharing his message with thousands of students at a time, empowering readers with his book Ten Feet Tall, or working with Fortune 100 companies like Facebook, HP, and Marriott, Farbstein consistently delivers tools to audiences of all ages to shatter limiting beliefs, elevate their mindset, and create an amplified life.

Farbstein continues to break barriers and pave the way for people who often feel invisible. In 2020, he made his runway debut at NY Fashion Week wearing Tommy Hilfiger Adaptive and has become a sought-after voice for inclusion. Farbstein was named in Instagram’s #19under19 as one of the 19 most influential teenagers in the world with his mission to Elevate Empathy.
