CHICAGO, ILLINOIS--Seventeen-year-old David Kuriniec has already shown that he is an advocate for people with disabilities, reported Chicago's NBC5 News.

He also got the attention of lawmakers and President Bush.
The junior plans to run for political office and continue advocating for disability rights.
