Rockhampton's Bailey Connor in February

Tremendous thanks for educating local readers on dwarfism

HEY guys, my name's Bailey. I'm 15 years. I'm a Dwarf like Floydy!

I was diagnosed with achondroplasia when I was four weeks old.

My height now is 139.6cm. I'm expected to reach from 148cm to 155cm.

You guys are incredible! Teaching Australia and even the world about dwarfism.

The article about Floydy in the Women's Weekly was very touching.

I will never be able to play football but that hasn't stopped me doing things I love.

I've been a drummer for 10 years and played in a variety of bands, both in and outside of school, played various amounts of non-contact sport and even driven cars.

I'm now waiting on becoming a diesel fitter as an occupation.

I can tell by the amount of support that Floydy has, he will be encouraged to do whatever he feels comfortable with. I wish Floydy and you guys all the best!
