Born Different


Born Different showcases amazing individuals across the globe who, despite serious challenges, have risen to take on the world with a bold heart.

Across the world young people are coming of age in a selfie-obsessed world hell-bent on perfection. Faces are tuned, lips plumped and outfits planned for days, all to achieve the perfect look. But what if you’re different – born physically disabled, or hit with a one-in-a-million disease? Would you let it defeat you – or would you come out fighting?

Each of our stories follows young people as they challenge stereotypes, break down barriers and battle to prove they have what it takes to succeed.

Hunter, 17, was born with a condition called fibular hemimelia that meant he was missing a bone in each leg. His parents had to make the difficult decision to amputate at around the same time most other children are learning to walk. This year he took home a 200m sprint silver after competing in the Paralympic Games.

Jonathan, from Russell, Canada, has a severe form of epidermolysis bullosa – a condition that makes his skin 
so fragile it flakes, blisters and peels from his body. He’s unlikely to live past 25 years old – but he still has dreams and future plans, and right now he’s preparing for a long-anticipated trip to see the northern lights.

Inspiring, poignant and humbling, each of our characters force you to leave your assumptions at the door.
