Joseph Williams was born with otofacial synd-ome, which meant he didn’t have a jaw. His mom was pregnant with Joseph and his twin but lost his twin in the womb. His mother was stunned when she saw Joseph without jaws for the first time. He was born in Illinois. When he was a few days old, he was brought to Chicago for several operations.

The doctors tried to build a jaw using a bone and skin graft but, his body didn’t accept it, and the sur-gery was unsuccessful. Growing up Joseph couldn’t breathe, eat or even speak properly and was always bul-ied by people, which led to him having very l-w self-esteem.

Eventually, Joseph was put up for adoption. His condition had a big impact on him, and he tried his best to not let it affect him by spending his time trying to meet new people and travelling. His condition requires him to have a tube linked to his stomach through which he feeds his stomach. He also communicates through sign language which he was taught as a child.

Joseph has accepted himself and his only goal is not to restrict himself from doing anything. He said that although people might think he is unattractive, he is still a human who has feelings and deserves to be treated the right way with dignity.
