And You Thought You Were Petite…

Meet the world’s tiniest teenager: 15-year-old Jyoti Amge. The little lady measures 21 inches and weighs less than 11 pounds. Her short stature is a form of dwarfism called achodroplasia, which occurs in one out of 25,000 individuals. Despite her condition, Amge is a happy—and ambitious—girl. Like every other teen, she attends school, chats on her cell, and has a thing for fashionable dresses. Her latest extracurricular activity is recording a pop album with Indian Bhangra/rap sensation Mika Singh, and she hopes to be a Bollywood star. Amge hasn’t let her height get in the way of her dreams. “I’m proud of being small,” she said. “I’m not scared of [it] and I don’t regret it.” [Cyana Trend Land]
