Comment, like, share this story. Jasmine is 18 years old, lives in China, AND is six feet tall! That's tall no matter where you live, but in China it is ver very tall, and especially for a girl, and that's a lot to go through. She wasn't very tall when she was in elementary school - just like all the other kids in her grade - but, in seventh grade, when she hit puberty and started developing, she grew nearly fifteen centimeters in that one year. That growth changed everything for her. Her classmates were all much much shorter than she was, and somehow that ended up having them leave her out of tons of activities and projects. On top of al of that, and how different she now felt from the rest of her old friends and classmates, shopping for clothes became a real challenge. It go so hard that ended up having to shop for mens clothes and the big and tall shops. Her dreams of dressing up like the other girls and using make up and fitting in a feeling beautiful, well, it just never quite worked out that way for her. The fact that she was "the tall girl" had her singled out and friend-less. Unfortunately, she got used to it, being a loner, the tall girl, and after awhile she learned how not to let it bother her. In fact, she convinced herself that it was better, and easier - after all, now she pretty much wore the same black t-shirt every day and never had to worry about putting on make up or flirting with boys or any of that. Jasmine is even taller than most of the boys in her class, and that makes it hard as well. She's tried to join in on activities with the other girls in her class. but there is something uncomfortable about it and it seems that none of the other kids want to hang out with someone who is so much taller than them. Sometimes she really just hates her body. She knows of course that fashion models are all tall as well, but Jasmine doesn't feel pretty in any way, so it doesn't help much to think about that. And it doesn't help that the other kids make fun of "the tall girl" behind her back, and it's even worse when it's time for photos - nobody can ever get her into the frame with her classmates, and so usually those photos don't have her in them. It's hard not to get jealous of the other girls her age as they go out clothes shopping and doing each others make up and all the followers they have on their social media accounts and the likes they get on their selfies. Jasmine just sits there and watches it all happen. She realized she couldn't change the way the other kids saw her, or treated her, and so she decided to put 100% of her energy and effort into her studies and school work. So, instead of shopping or taking selfies, or much of anything for that matter, Jasmine buried herself in her books, trying to become the best person she can be. So, over the years and through high school she has maintained amazingly good grades and this fall she is heading off to college to study economics . She feels good about who she is, how tall she is, and how she looks. She's one of those tall women now. And, she's learned something super valuable - you might not be able to change the way you look to others, but you can change your own image of yourself on the inside. She has learned that who you are is who you choose to be and NOT what others say you are. Jasmine is now proud to be the tall girl. - - - We love this true story.

this is kinda retarded like so what your tall that doesn't mean you can't wear makeup that doesn't make any sense and I know lots of tall people that are 6"0 and they manage fine.

Wow, weird...in our country (Finland) beign tall is nice. I'm about 5 feet long (171,5cm) and it's average. Most of people actually "compete" about who is taller. Even me and my friends. My friend are taller than me (one of them are 176cm) and actually we are like "Haha youbare so short. Shortie :D" to people that are shorter than us. I would like to be tall and i get happy when i'm taller than someone else. Like my classmates. Some of the boys are shorter than me and i think its nice :D My dad is about 6.4 feet long (195cm) and my brother might be even taller than him. That is kinda cool tho.

I just went to a modelling agency today as a 6 foot tall girl. I'm too tall to be a model they say. This crushed me because I was already self conscious of my height and thought modelling was one of the only places where tall girls are appreciated.

I am small but I’m fine with it. The o blur problem is that it is hard to get a direct size for stuff. Getting shorts and shirts are easy but it’s really hard to find pants. I never really wear jeans because I have trouble with the buttons and zippers so usually I just wear sweat pants and normal pants and finding pants that are around my size can be difficult. Most of the time when we do get pants they usually turn out to be to big for me. I Don’t exactly remember how short I am but I think from the last time I was measured I am 4’ 6” which is below average for 11 year olds. I also have trouble reaching things as well. I was luckily able to fit in because, well I’m in 5th grade and like half of the kids in my class are pretty short. Despite that I am second shortest I my class right after another kid named Rylan.
