Brandon Farbstein is a 22-year-old 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.



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 enact change. Brandon was the driving force behind two new pieces of legislation that were signed into law in Virginia by the time he turned 18. The first addresses bullying prevention and the other requires 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 and 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. He frequently advises foundations, boards, and large-scale organizations on their DEI efforts, especially towards the disability community - the largest minority group in the world comprising 15% of the global population.



Brandon 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. Brandon was named in Instagram’s #19under19 as one of the most influential young people in the world with his mission to Elevate Empathy®.



Brandon 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.
