Meet Jyoti Amage, a 18 year old Indian student who Indian student stands just 24.7 inches tall, making her the smallest teenager in the world recorded by Guinness World Records. Amge was formerly crowned the world’s shortest teenager, and stands about three inches shorter than Bridgette Jordan, the American woman who held the shortest woman title before her. Amge, who has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia, is not expected to grow any more. Off course her size makes certain things harder for her, but she truly is a bundle of joy and perfectly happy with her size. Amge has dreamed of becoming a Bollywood star and plans to pursue a college degree.
“I feel grateful to be this size,” she said. “After all, if I weren’t small and had not achieved these world records I might never have been able to visit Japan and Europe, and many other wonderful countries.”
