Elisany Silva is the tallest teen in the world. But rather than bringing fame and fortune, her 6’9" frame is causing serious problems.

She has been forced to leave school because she can’t fit on the bus and complains that she now has difficulty playing with friends. She also has trouble navigating her humble Brazilian home.

Her mother fears she has some sort of illness, but does not have the money to pay for doctors.

Despite her difficulties, Elisany has a dream for the future that would put her height to use: modeling.

According to reports, she is set to make her first runway appearance at a bridal fashion show in Belem, Brazil.

Elisany Silva, a 14-year-old girl is 206 centimeters tall
