They Called Him A Monkey, But Look At Him Now

This young man from Rwanda, born Nsanzimana Elie, went viral last year after Afrimax English produced a documentary about how he was constructed differently. He was completely cut off from his family, living in the forest and surviving on grass.

Nsanzimana Elie lived in the bush and was bullied in his town because of his appearance, with others calling him a monkey or a gorilla.

He can't speak because he has microcephaly, and he's always been ridiculed, teased, and harassed because of his appearance.

After the loss of his mother's first five children, Elie was born in 1999.

The young man has undergone a significant shift as a result of a GoFundMe effort and has now been accepted into a school to study.

After spending a lot of time in the forest, he was enrolled in school and is now learning how to stay with people. He looks so good and happy.
