The world's smallest girl lives in India and she's only 58.42 centimeters high what isn't so high, even for a dwarf it's kind a small.

Jyoti Amge is 15 years old and has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia. She now weighs 5 kg and is fully grown, but what you do need to know is that she isn't unhappy about her small size.

She says: "I am proud of being small. I love the attention I get".

She lives a "normal" life and eats, dreams, and lives like any other teenager of her age in India. She goes to the local High School in Nagpur and enjoys learning new things every day.

However there will always be a big difference between her and other students. Just look at the picture above, she just isn't taller then a bicycle...
