An Interview with Houston, Viral TikTok star and Award-Winning Photographer

Recently, the coolest version of the trending “Bongo-Cha-Cha-Cha” TikTok video caught my eye. You know, the one where people act out a scenario showing how they defied the expectations of others? Well, I stopped scrolling when I saw this superbly acted, inspiring and funny one created by Houston Vandergriff.

In it, Houston acts out dialogue from doctors and other people his parents encountered when he was born. Houston wears a white coat and mouths dialogue accompanied by the caption: “The doctors to my parents: We’re sorry your son has Down Syndrome.”
