This kid spent 15 years in first grade

This kid spent 15 years in first grade

This is Joseph. He may look like a kid, but he's 21 years old.

He has a rare condition that makes him look and think a lot younger

Because of this, his classmates and even his his teachers bullied him

The condition not only makes him look young, it also means he can't learn very well

And that's why he has failed first grade 15 times

His classmates have gone on to get good jobs, but he's still in first grade

But in spite of all this, Joseph never gave up

He studies hard, does his homework, and has never missed one day of school

He says he will never stop trying until he one day graduates

I think Joseph's story is very inspirational and I hope that soon he passes first grade
