Brandon Farbstein’s background

At just 19, Brandon is a renowned empowerment & TEDx speaker, Gen Z activist, and author. Brandon was diagnosed with a rare form of dwarfism at the age of 2, and he has turned his experience of life from suffering, isolation, and victimhood to empowerment, impact, and influence. After a severe battle with cyberbullying in high school, Brandon decided to share his story- to both offer hope, and to enact change. Brandon has since helped bring forth two new anti-bullying laws in Virginia and will be working with lawmakers in DC to implement new policy federally.

'The first time I heard Brandon speak, I was blown away. I came and left the meeting feeling very different- I highly recommend him and his ability to speak from the heart. I admire Brandon and all that he has accomplished in such a short time. He is truly an inspiration and encourages me to be the best version of myself at all times. Thank you Brandon for your insight and 'half-full' perspective on life!'

'Brandon was an excellent speaker who exceeded our expectations. Right from the beginning Brandon was prepared and connected with the students on a personal level that ensured they hung on his every word. His message of the power of one, bullying, and overcoming challenges was truly inspirational. The teachers are quoting him in class, and he truly touched our student's hearts to help our community become even better!'
