Dorsey was born on January 16th, 1977, with a congenital
disability known as Apert’s Syndrome. When Dorsey was born, his
forehead was pushed outward, his nose and mouth were pushed inward,
and his fingers and toes were fused, meaning he had no individual

survival and advised them to put him into an institution. His
parents both knew and trusted in God, and they believed that God
would do great things in Dorsey’s life. Throughout his life, Dorsey
has had to overcome a lot of obstacles, and trials, being bullied,

Teachers told Dorsey he would not make it in college, and with all
odds against him, he entered Queens Borough Community College.
After four years there, and after attaining an associate degree, he
entered the University of Valley Forge. After years of hard work
and perseverance, he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Youth
Ministry. His life saying is, "can’t is not in my vocabulary"
because, for most of his life, he has never used the word can’t. He
believes that with God, all things are possible and that he can do
all things through Christ who gives him strength. It’s with God’s
help he is overcoming life’s obstacles.
