  • - So what happens when your bones are soft?

  • What does that mean?

  • - You're not drinking enough milk.

  • - I tried that.

  • I swear to god, I tried it.

  • (upbeat, plucky music)

  • Hi, guys.

  • - Hi. - Hello.

  • - My name's Maddox.

  • - And I'm Charity.

  • - Selene.

  • - Hi, Selene.

  • - Nice to meet you.

  • - Nice to meet you guys, too.

  • I love y'all red hair.

  • - Thank you.

  • - So what are we here to talk about today?

  • - We are here to talk about me as a person

  • with a disability.

  • - You know, I feel kind of bad for you

  • when you just say that.

  • - Why?

  • - It's hard to say.

  • - Is it because I'm short?

  • - I don't wanna say that.

  • - When you ever see people like me,

  • what do you think we like to be called?

  • - That's a hard question for me to think about.

  • - Would you call me a dwarf?

  • Would you call me a midget?

  • Or would you call me a little person?

  • What would you say?

  • - Um...

  • I don't know.

  • - Very safe, not gonna get mad.

  • - Hm.

  • Dwarf?

  • - Dwarf.

  • And what would you say?

  • - Little people.

  • - The best thing to call us is little people.

  • Because everybody has a different type of disability,

  • and their disabilities are in different categories.

  • So, it's good to say little person.

  • - And how tall are you?

  • - Hm.

  • How tall are you?

  • - I don't know.

  • Five feet.

  • - Let's stand side by side.

  • Are you taller, or am I taller?

  • - I don't wanna be rude.

  • (laughing)

  • - Oh, are you taller than me?

  • I think you are.

  • I am three feet tall.

  • - Wow.

  • - How were you able to be so small?

  • - My disability is called osteogenesis imperfecta.

  • It means my bones were very soft.

  • My bones were so soft that when I sneezed,

  • I could break something.

  • When I cough, I could break something.

  • - Look at my muscles.

  • - I didn't have muscles back in those days.

  • I had, like, over 100 fractures and 23 surgeries.

  • I use my wheelchair more.

  • - And is it like the robotic type when it has

  • like a joystick?

  • - Yes.

  • It's motorized, yes. - I love those types.

  • - I know, right?

  • Because I'm a little person, everything is kind

  • of smashed down.

  • Imagine like you take some ice cream

  • and you smash it down to a certain size,

  • and that's how our body is.

  • - You should eat onions to make you grow.

  • - Lord,

  • I never heard onions. - Make your hair grow.

  • - When I was younger, I did not like being a little person.

  • I really cried a lot of about it.

  • - But you get used to it.

  • - Yes, I got used to it.

  • I said, "Hey, what am I gonna do?

  • "Cry all the time?

  • "I might as well love myself."

  • And that's what I did.

  • - Well, when you're short you look so cute.

  • - Thank you, I know.

  • I work so hard.

  • - Do you dance?

  • - Girl, I used to.

  • When I was younger, I used to hit the club

  • and I'd be dancin'.

  • - Do you have a small car?

  • - How small is the car?

  • - Small enough so it would just fit you

  • like if you were a tall person.

  • - Then how's my son and my husband gonna fit in it?

  • - Oh. (laughing)

  • - I take the Access Bus,

  • and so I call them and they come to my door.

  • That's how I go to work.

  • - What do you do?

  • - I am a case manager, meaning that I help people

  • with disabilities.

  • - How do you do the things you can't do

  • like reach the door knob?

  • - There's not nothin' I really can't do.

  • We as people with disabilities always find a way

  • of doing, accommodating.

  • - Do you do any sports?

  • - Me, what?

  • (laughing)

  • Let's see, uh.

  • Nails, hairs, makeup, no. (laughing)

  • - I'm curious about do you have any kids or pets?

  • - I have one little boy.

  • He is five years old, no pets.

  • - And when you got to work,

  • do you have like a babysitter to take care of your kid?

  • - I used to.

  • I have a husband, I'm married.

  • - [Maddox] Oh.

  • - Ain't it cute?

  • So I'm married.

  • - And then when he wants to kiss you and he has to

  • go all the way to his knees.

  • - I know, he hates to bend down, so he'll sit down

  • and he'll go, "Come here, come here, come here."

  • (laughing)

  • And so I come and he go, mwah.

  • - Tell me about your son.

  • Is he cute? (laughing)

  • - Okay yes, he is cute.

  • He is tall like you, he has curly hair.

  • - And when you go shopping for clothes, and,

  • what happens if they don't have the right size for you?

  • - Well, let me ask you this.

  • Do you think I wear children's clothes,

  • or do you think I wear tall people clothes?

  • - Children clothes?

  • - Good answer, but no.

  • I wear a size four and five in women.

  • I look for the shortest skirts,

  • because the shortest skirts is gonna be long for me,

  • which would be a perfect size.

  • - That's a good idea.

  • - I can only wear children's shoes.

  • My feet won't grow.

  • I just--

  • - Maybe you should pray to Jesus.

  • - You know I did, you know, and Jesus said to me,

  • "Be happy for who you are."

  • - Do people stare at you?

  • - Yes, they do.

  • I do not like it.

  • If they're staring at me 'cause they think I'm cute,

  • that's fine.

  • But if they're staring at me because they want to

  • make fun of me, that is not fine.

  • We don't like it when people bend down and say,

  • "How, hey you doin'?"

  • It makes us feel like that you're talking to us like kids.

  • - You still look beautiful when you're small.

  • - Thank you.

  • - I'll give you a hug.

  • - Bring it in.

  • (squealing)

  • If you see somebody different, or someone with a disability,

  • would you bully them?

  • - No.

  • - What about you?

  • - No, 'cause they're still people.

  • - Yes, they are still people.

  • High five it, man.

  • Thank you.

  • I think that when you see a little person,

  • or you see anybody different,

  • treat them as normal as if you don't even

  • see their disability.

  • - Do you like being small?

  • - I love it now.

  • I love being short because it's hard for people

  • to forget me.

  • - Really?

  • (laughing) - Yes, really.

  • If I'm small, I'm different and people remember people

  • that are different.

  • - Thank you.

  • - For sharing my story?

  • Thank you for listening.

  • - I'll give you a hug.

  • - Oh, love your hugs.

  • - Instead of a handshake.

  • - I have one more question for you.

  • - Uh oh.

  • What is it, Gigi?

  • - Can you do a cartwheel?

  • - See.

  • Gigi.

  • No.
