A 22-year-old New Yorker named Jonathan Novick has dwarfism. He desired to show to the world the experience of walking in his shoes.

When Novick was young, he sadly was diagnosed with dwarfism, achondroplasia. The fibroblast growth factor receptor is a protein in the body that is affected by the genetic disorder called achondroplasia.

This protein starts to behave incorrectly in a condition called achondroplasia, which keeps the person’s height below average by preventing the formation of bone in the growth plate cartilage.

He claims that his upbringing was generally normal but that his move to New York City marked a significant transformation in his life.

He wore a concealed camera and made the film “Don’t Look Down On Me” to record the abuse and the bullying he experiences while going around NYC as a dwarf.

If we all had a little more compassion, we would be able to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes” and genuinely grasp what it is like to be in their skin.

However, some people are plain awful as humans. The results were really unsettling. Simply for being small, he was subjected to stares, screams, insults (such as “short thing” and “midget”), and comparisons to children from the television program “Little People, Big World.”

I wanted to stop telling people what happened to me, he says in the video. I wanted to demonstrate what had occurred to the public.

Definitely eye-opening
