Diagnosed with a rare form of dwarfism at the age of 2 (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 and A Kids Book About Self-Love, or working with Fortune 100 companies like Facebook, 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. He was named in Instagram’s #19under19 as one of the 19 most influential teenagers in the world with his mission to elevate empathy. In 2020, Brandon made his runway debut at NY Fashion Week wearing Tommy Hilfiger Adaptive and has become a sought-after voice for inclusion. Read Less ^

“Brandon was the keynote speaker at our annual staff conference kick-off. Brandon’s powerful talk about his life’s experiences gave our staff a positive message on empowerment, leadership and growth. He was a true inspiration!”
"We were graced with a most astonishing and magical keynote address presented by Brandon Farbstein...a keynote address that left our hearts full and our eyes glistening with tears of love and gratefulness. Brandon shared his life experiences and his philosophy of survival and perseverance. He expressed to our tutors, academic coaches and mentors the importance of living a life of courage, sacrifice, and humility and how sharing those qualities with their students is crucial to the personal and academic success of not only the students but the tutors, coaches and mentors themselves. To say the Brandon was motivational would be doing him a grave injustice as his presentation was beyond inspirational; he was moving and intuitive. As the Executive Director if the NTA, I have had the honor to interact with keynote speakers for over 28 years and I can honestly say that I have never witnessed an outpouring of positivity and love as I saw both during and after Brandon’s keynote. Even now, I am still receiving comments about how much he touched the hearts and minds of our members. Brandon is a rare gift to the world and the NTA is so blessed that we were able to spend just a brief moment in time with this bright shining light. Brandon is Wilder’s modern- day emissary and we so desperately need him."
