VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Devin Johnson has a rare genetic condition that limits the use of his hands. But Johnson doesn't let the disability limit his dreams.

It also hasn't limited Johnson from sharing his experience on, which engages the district with parents and students on a variety of issues.

The fifth grader at Birdneck Elementary School is taking action by sharing with others about how to talk to fellow classmates with disabilities through his own experiences.
