Shortest woman - level 2

Shortest woman - level 2

27-09-2013 06:00

People from New York had a chance to see the world's shortest woman who came to their city from India.

The nineteen year old woman measures only 2 feet and half an inch (62 centimetres). She was born with dwarfism and is not expected to grow anymore. She weighs just five kilograms.

She says that she likes to be the shortest woman in the world because she can visit nice places all over the world.

The woman might be small, but her plans are big. She wants to be a Hollywood star. Good luck!

Difficult words: dwarfism (when you are very small), expect (think something will happen).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
