Otto is four years old and was born with achondroplasia dwarfism. His bones grow differently than the average person, resulting in shorter limbs and a larger head. He is able to just about anything an average-size child can, just sometimes in a different way. In addition to having dwarfism, Otto loves sports, creating art, playing with his sisters, and has recently developed a love for watching marching band! We believe differences are something to be celebrated and hope that by sharing his story and educating other about dwarfism, we can spark more compassion and kindness in the world.
