What if you were born with a rare form of dwarfism, and the doctors told your parents that you would never lead a normal life, that things like running, biking, or even walking without assistance might not be possible for you?
4’4, Actor/Stuntman, Pro Drummer, podcaster, and Surfer, Christophe Zajac Denek, found it challenging to watch the other kids grow taller around him, but he didn’t want to let that deter him from living life to the fullest.
But what would you do if society told you to stay small, but you knew that you were meant for greater things? Would you decide to just take the roles that were assigned to you? Or would you shock everyone and become an in-demand drummer, actor, and a stuntman, and let the whole world know that you were “kind of a big deal”?
