Social innovator Michele Sullivan is much shorter than most people. She discovered this on the first day of kindergarten, when her classmates focused on how she looked “different.” Her size creates daily challenges that most people can’t foresee or understand. Yet Michele believes we don’t need to understand what it’s like for someone else: we just need to have compassion. As she says, we can’t face each other’s fears or chase each other’s dreams, but we can support each other. There is absolutely nothing wrong with asking for help.
