Jyoti Amge, a 2ft teenager of Nagpur, India, is officially declared the world’s smallest woman. And height, 61.95cm-tall Jyoti hopes to celebrate being crowned the world’s shortest woman by launching a Bollywood movie career.
She took the Guinness World Record from 2ft 3in Bridgette Jordan. She measured 2.76 inches shorter than the 22-year-old American Bridgette Jordan, who had held the title since September.
Jyoti, dressed in one of her finest saris, called the honor an ‘extra birthday present’ and said she felt grateful for being small, as it had brought her recognition.
Jyoti weighs just 12lbs, just 9lbs more than she did at birth. She has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia, which stopped her growth after her first birthday.
She has brittle bones will most likely need care for the rest of her life, but that has not stopped her dreams of being a star.
As a teenager at school in Nagpur, Jyoti had her own small desk and chair, but said the other students didn’t treat her any differently. She also has a specially-made bed and utensils.
This was not Jyoti Amge’s first Guinness record. She was considered the world’s shortest teenager, but in turning 18 qualified for the new title. She has grown less than 1cm (0.4in) in the last two years, Guinness said in a statement, and will grow no more due to a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia.
She was officially crowned the world’s shortest woman at a Guinness World Records ceremony in Nagpur with her mother Ranjana.
