This is what diversity should be

Found a really cool story that I thought I'd share. Basically a guy named Kevin Truong, diagnosed with dwarfism at 5 will be working with CS IB tech team! 

Can't imagine what he's gone through and how hard he probably had to fight through the stigma, so congrats to him.

I get what you're saying but it's phrased a bit weird. In any case, props to CS. I remember seeing this on LinkedIn and being really happy for him.

Ya that's my bad, should've been more coherent.

What were you trying to say OP?

"I don't know how to explain to you that you should care about other people."

This is such a cool story. It would have been better to leave out the intro.

Ya not sure how that will work. But again he got to this point with hardwork, dedication and a spirit that I can't even imagine. Its obviously a different thing in IB, but I'm sure staffers and coworkers will ensure his health isn't destroyed. Well atleast I hope so.
