Elisany Silva is believed to be suffering from a rare disease which has caused her extreme height.

She hopes to use her height to her advantage however, and is interested in modelling – she will reportedly make her debut on the runway at a bridal show in Belem, Brazil, according to the Huffington Post website.

Elisay, who is from the Brazilian Amazon state of Para, told local television: “It’s hard when I’m inside home. I get distracted and hit the wood in the ceiling with my head,” adding that she no longer travelled to school because she cannot fit on the bus.

Her mother said: “I want her to stop growing up, to be like the other girls because I know she feels weird and sometimes wants to be like them.”
