"The students in my class were amazing. They were funny, engaging and charismatic," Chris says. "But the rest of our neighborhood didn't really understand them. Nobody valued them. I wanted to show off these individuals and help them show the world what they had to offer."

So Chris launched a Facebook page, YouTube channel, and nonprofit called "Special Books by Special Kids". He travels around the world interviewing children and adults with disabilities with the hope of spreading empathy and acceptance.

In this video, Chris interviews Griffin and his younger brother Turner, who is diagnosed with Down syndrome.

"Their Mom told me that she explained Turner's diagnosis to Griffin when he was three," Chris said. "He instantly responded 'If Turner has Down syndrome then so do I.' "
