What does the world's tallest girl, 215 cm tall, look like and how did her life turn out? Photo.

Now the girl is 26 years old

Rumeysa Gelgi was born in 1997 in the Turkish city of Safranbolu. At 2 metres 15 centimetres tall, she is considered the tallest woman in the world. When she was four months old, Rumeysa was diagnosed with Weaver's syndrome (a rare genetic disorder that causes excessive growth). By the age of six, the girl had grown to 1 metre 70 centimetres and felt like a child in an adult body.

It is worth noting that only 50 people worldwide have this diagnosis. At the age of 17, the Turkish native became the tallest teenager in the world and entered the Guinness Book of Records. In 2021, she was recognised as the tallest woman in the world, and in 2022, as the owner of the largest hands and longest fingers. OBOZREVATEL will tell you what the record holder does and whether she has accepted her fate (to see the photo, scroll to the end).

Since childhood, Helgi has faced health problems and inconveniences. Doctors diagnosed her with a heart defect and implanted screws in her spine to relieve the strain on it. In addition, the girl's life is noticeably different from people of normal height. She buys dresses of the largest sizes as blouses and sews her own skirts and trousers. Rumeysa travels in a special van and limits air travel because she cannot sit for more than 3 hours.


Because of her appearance, the record holder faces criticism every day. But the girl is not discouraged, emphasising that it is not always bad to be different. Helgi is known to be an IT professional and recently had to fly to the US to pursue a career in web development. For the flight, she booked a whole row of six seats in the cabin.


Rumeysa runs her personal blog on Instagram, where she has 40,000 followers. She appears on television, talking about life with Weaver's syndrome, and also inspires people who have faced rare diseases. The girl does not complain about life, knowing that she has a special mission.


OBOZREVATEL recently reported that twin sisters from America married twin brothers and gave birth to sons. The couple started living in one big house in Virginia and created one Instagram account for the four of them.
