Join Pitt Program Council for “Overcoming Adversity: Turning a Disadvantage to an Advantage” on Wednesday, March 1st.
RJ Mitte is best know for his roll as Walt Jr. in AMC’s hit show, Breaking Bad. While he played a character with cerebral palsy, not many fans of the show were aware that RJ himself has lived with cerebral palsy since his diagnosis at age 3. He no longer requires crutches to walk, however it is still a large part of his life. RJ is a celebrity ambassador for United Cerebral Palsy, an international nonprofit charitable organization that advocates for those with the disorder.
RJ will be speaking about his career, and the challenges of his physical disability, plus how he learned to conquer it and turn it into a career asset.
