Since second or third grade, 11-year old Ben said he's been teased for not being "the stereotype boy that likes to go and play football or baseball." On "The Rosie Show" (Weeknights, 7 p.m. EST on OWN) he talked about how his passion has instead been fashion for as long as he could remember.
He's always been interested in clothing and design, and is involved in designing fashions now. One of Ben's biggest inspirations has always been RuPaul, and so Rosie O'Donnell had RuPaul on to meet his young fan.
"I am so excited for you because you ahve so much energy and so much creativity," RuPaul told young Ben, who'd yet to be able to pick his jaw up from the floor. "You're going to set this world on fire, kiddo." That's the kind of positive affirmation and support Ben needs to hear to continue pursuing his dreams and passion for fashion.
