Jadiant has achieved so much at such a young age He is an ambassador, champion, and influencer for the Courageous Faces Foundation which he feels extremely passionate about.

I love this Foundation and really want everyone to know about it! If they could donate just $1 or $5 to it, that’d mean the world to me, the more the merrier. Our mission statement is to help give a better quality of life for people with rare or severe conditions like myself, which is even more important than ever during this pandemic. A lot of them are at higher risk.”
#7 Jadiant loves to laugh and make people laugh
“Some people can’t take the heat, but obviously I could—to the third degree at least. I just want people to know how much easier your life becomes when you stop being offended and find the laughter in life. Ryan Reynolds has been a huge factor in that realization for me. It’s not a coping mechanism, it’s who I am, and I love to laugh. I love to make people laugh, and if you get heartburn after reading this, it just means I’ve touched your heart.”
#8 That's Jadiant before getting burned. He was only four when this mishap happened
Jadiant was only four when he got burnt. This incident happened in 2003, he suffered from 95 percent burns to his body and survived miraculously. He was playing in a barn behind his family home when his dog knocked over a candle used for light.

It was a miracle, doctors thought he wouldn't make it through that night, He went into a coma and woke up after 6 months.

#9 "Embrace your different colors, you’re pretty, there’s no one else like you"
He says his past has made him a caring person.
“No one deserves to be unhappy in the way they look, because we’re all beautifully unique. Just sometimes other flowers get more colors (like us, people who have gone through tragedy) and we just don’t think we fit in with the rest of the flowers. But the truth is, we are the most beautiful of all the flowers. So embrace your different colors, you’re pretty, there’s no one else like you,” he said.
#10 Jadiant wants people to know it’s important to remember their feelings, and validate them, but don’t stay in them
“There is no right solution that fits everyone in their suffering. I’d say it’s important to remember these feelings, and validate them, but don’t stay in them. Often times, it’s easier to give in to despair and not care. But I just want you to beware our biggest enemy is ourselves. We never really grow up, we just learn how to parent our inner child.”

#12 Jadiant told why is it so important to have friends and a support system
He continued: “So I’d say try practicing self-compassion, and really being a good friend to yourself like you would a best friend of yours going through a hard time. Iroh, from Avatar: The Last Airbender, has taught me that, “Sometimes the best way to solve your own problems is to help someone else with theirs.” Truly, denying yourself and helping others can be very rewarding. It’s important to not wallow in our sadness if we can muster enough courage to do so. That’s why it’s important to have friends and a support system.”
