Are you following Humans of New York on Instagram and Facebook and with your heart? Because if you're not, you almost missed out on a seriously cool story from seriously impressive New Yorker that is warming the cockles of the hearts of the internet on a particularly dreary-seeming day.
Yesterday, seventh-grader Audrianna Beattie — a straight-A student who's fighting to be allowed on her middle school's boys wrestling team — testified before a Federal judge for 40 minutes.
