The Rapper Without a Chain - Daniel White

Daniel White was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at eight years old. He was from the north of Boston in Massachusetts and went to the Sewell-Anderson School as an elementary student. Then, he transferred to the Breed Middle School. Certain factors, such as stress and social anxiety, trigger his symptoms, and tics. He would start to roll his eyes, make different facial expressions, and hum sounds, which attracted the attention of many people. Although Tourette Syndrome was a huge discouragement for him, he overcame the fear of humiliation through the help of his friends and made him what he is today. In this unheeding world, we need more people like Daniel to benefit others, rather than benefiting themselves.
