Brandon Farbstein is the keynote speaker for the 2019 Power of Children Awards. Brandon inspires millions of people across the globe with his universal message of living life on your own terms and innovating your own solution. At just 20 years old, Brandon is a renowned empowerment speaker, Gen Z activist, and author. He was diagnosed with a rare form of dwarfism at the age of 2 and has turned his life experience of suffering, isolation, and victimhood into a life of empowerment, impact, and influence.
After a severe battle with cyberbullying in high school, Brandon decided to share his story to offer hope and enact change. He has since helped bring forth two anti-bullying laws in Virginia and will be working with lawmakers in Washington, D.C. to implement new Federal policy.
Whether on tour with his recently published book, Ten Feet Tall, sharing his message with students across the country—including Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL—or working with Fortune 100 companies like Facebook, Brandon consistently delivers tools to audiences of all ages to shift perspectives and strengthen their mindset. He is passionate about helping others find their own gifts within, to live to their fullest potential, and leaves his attendies with a shift in perspective and a "ten feet tall" mindset.
In 2018, Brandon was named in TigerBeat & Instagram's #19under19 as one of the 19 most influential teens in the world as his mission to Elevate Empathy continues to spread around the globe.
