Chandler Crews has a passion for writing and public speaking. Born with the most common form of dwarfism, achondroplasia, she grew up limited when it came to her own independence.
Imagining what her life would have been like if she were able to see and experience the world the way most people do, she made the decision to have corrective orthopedic surgeries in Baltimore, MD to lengthen her arms and legs. In a span of four years, Chandler went from standing at 3’10” to over a foot taller at 4’11”. During that time she gained an online presence with her Facebook page, Chandler in Baltimore.
Today, she is the founder and president of The Chandler Project, a nonprofit dedicated to helping others in situations similar to her own. You can follow her on Instagram: @chancrews
