World's smallest teen girl..!

    Jyoti Amge, 15, just about 59.69 cm in height and 5.25 kg in weight, is the world's smallest girl recognized by the Indian Book of Records. Jyoti Amge from Nagpur of central India, has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia [wiki]. According to mum Ranjana,there seemed nothing wrong at Jyoti's birth, but they came to know about her disorder when she was five. Now fully grown, Amge who won't grow any taller than her current height, enjoys her life with full confidence for the future.
She said: 'I am proud of being small. I love all the attention I get. I'm not scared of being small and I don't regret it.
'I'm just the same as other people. I eat like you, dream like you. I don't feel any different.'
Jyoti is treated like a mini-celebrity in her home town, where people flock to meet her and some even treat her like a goddess.
She will even be releasing an album with her favourite Indian pop star, the bhangra/rap star Mika Singh.
Jyoti is ambitious and hopes to work as a Bollywood actress one day.
She said: 'I would love to work in a big city like Mumbai, act in films and travel to London and America.
In 2006, Nepal's 14-year-old 50-centimeter-tall Khagendra Thapa Magar's apply to Guinness World Records to be the world's shortest man but was dismissed. Thapa Magar was promised to review his application once he grows to 18 years old. It's not clear now if Jyoti Amge will make the similar application to be the world's shortest woman.

Jyoti Amge‘s classmates treat her like any other student. They posed with her for a photo shot.
