Brandon Farbstein: Changing the world with Empathy


“The world needs you, as you are fully.”


Brandon Farbstein inspires millions of people across the globe with his universal message of living life on your own terms and innovating your own solution. 

Born with an extremely rare form of dwarfism (metatropic dysplasia), Brandon 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. Brandon 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.

Whether sharing his message with thousands of students at a time, empowering readers with his books Ten Feet Tall & A Kids Book About Self-Love, or working with Fortune 100 companies like Meta, HP, and Marriott, Brandon consistently delivers tools to audiences of all ages to shatter limiting beliefs, elevate their mindset, and create an amplified life.

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