Emotional Advice Kid Ciro Ortiz

Ciro Ortiz is only eleven years old, but he already knows that sometimes, we all need a little pep talk.

For two dollars, he gives emotional advice to anyone who needs it. In the summer, he sets up shop on a corner in Williamsburg, but as temperatures drop, he can be found at the Bedford Avenue station or on his Instagram page @emotionaladvicekid.
