Who is Quaden Bayles?

Quaden Bayles is a nine-year-old boy from the city of Queensland in Australia. He suffers from the genetic disorder, achondroplasia, which causes dwarfism. Bayles has recently gone viral over a video recorded by his mother of him breaking down into tears because of his constant encounters with bullying at school. In the video, Quaden states several times, “I want to kill myself”. Even the voice of his mother breaks as she records and shows the effect bullying has on her child. His mother, Yarraka Bayles, warns parents that bullying prevention doesn’t do enough for the kids and that’s the reason suicides are not decreasing.
