Heather Greene (United States)
Believe it or not, Heather Greene’s 6’5” in (1.96 m) height hasn’t changed since she was 15! Can you imagine how hard it must have been for her in high school?
Rumeysa Gelgi (Turkey)
Doctors diagnosed Rumeysa with a rare disorder known as Weaver Syndrome, which causes rapid growth. And now she is known as the tallest teenager in the world at 7 feet (2.13 m). Some short people may think she was blessed, but in reality she’s already using walking sticks because gravity hurts, you short lucky bastards
Elisany Silva (Brazil)
Meet a 18-year old Brazilian model – Elisany Silva, measuring 6’9” (2.06 m) tall. Although she’s still a teen, she’s already planning her wedding and, of course, having kids. Elisany is worried that she might have problems conceiving because of the tumor she had, but adoption is very much still an option for her.
Zeng Jinlian (China)
And finally, #1 tallest woman who ever lived – Zeng Jinlian. There were only 17 people who reached 8 feet (2.44 m) tall and Zeng Jinlian is the only woman among them. Sadly, she didn’t even live long enough to see her 18th birthday. She died in 1982 at the age of 17, measuring 8’2” (2.49 m) tall.
