Meet The World’s Shortest Woman: 19-year-old Jyoti Amge Is Under 25 Inches Tall



When Ranjana Amge was in the final months of her
fifth pregnancy, she feared that she’d never hold
that baby in her arms. The doctor’s exams didn’t
go well. Experts didn’t know what to make of her
sonograms. Something was wrong. Now, 20 years
later, Amge has reason to be proud. Her youngest
daughter is happy, healthy and world famous.“All
the bad feelings are erased, replaced by good
ones,” Amge tells The Huffington Post. “We are
lucky.” At just under 25 inches tall, Jyoti Amge of
Nagpur, India, is the world’s shortest woman.
She’s a college-bound student, with dreams of
making it as an actress. Still, she weighs just 12
pounds — only nine pounds more than she did at
birth..see more photos below
Even among dwarfs, Amge is tiny. “Game Of
Thrones” star Peter Dinklage is more than twice
her height. But Amge remains an optimist.
“It’s hard for me to reach things,” Amge says. “It’s
good I have brothers and sisters to help.”On her
first trip to New York, Amge visited the Statue of
Liberty, before a media tour to launch the Guinness
World Records 2014 edition, which would include a
profile in the Daily News, a visit to the ladies of
“The View” and a press conference at the top of the
Empire State Building.
