Jonathan Novick is a dwarf living in NYC. He says that everyday he is stared at, photographed and made fun of. Now he shares his experience with us in a short video entitled, “Don’t Look Down On Me” in hopes that others will think twice about how they treat people different than themselves.

“The next time you see someone who is different than you, think about what their day might be like," he says, "think about all the events of their life leading up to that point, and think about their day — and think about what part of their day you want to be?”
