  • D'Agostino engages students at Sussex Middle School in an interactive exercise.



Nicholas D'Agostino, a former student of the Sussex Middle School, returned to the school to present his Rise Above Your Gravity Program to the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students.

D'Agostino shared his expertise on how your gravity, that one thing in life that is holding you back from doing the things you want to do, can weigh you down. Due to Spinal Muscular Atrophy, he has been unable to walk since he was 6 years old.

Today, D'Agostino uses his disability to enable others. Through poetry and presentation, he inspires young people to look beyond their own gravity. He raises awareness about bullying and shares his experiences while helping the weak to find their strengths and shine through the darkness around them.
