The world’s tallest woman reveals what life is like for her.

She is the tallest lady according to the 2023 Guinness World Records. Rumeysa received recognition for having the largest hands, the longest, continuously colorfully manicured fingers, and the longest back the year before.

The tallest woman in the world is Rumeysa Gelgi, a 26-year-old Turkish native who stands at 7 feet, 0.7 inches, or 215 centimeters. She is the tallest lady according to the 2023 Guinness World Records.

Rumeysa received recognition for having the largest hands, the longest, continuously colorfully manicured fingers, and the longest back the year before.

Ailments of Weavers
Rumeysa was given the Weaver Syndrome diagnosis when she was just four months old. This exceedingly rare genetic disease causes abnormally quick bone development.

Intellectual incapacity, loose muscles in the core, and tight muscles in the limbs with poor coordination are other symptoms that may be present in people with this illness.

A harsh, low-pitched cry, obvious morphological variations in the face and feet, and other characteristics may also be present. The illness can have an impact on several facets of an individual’s life, with symptoms typically appearing before to birth.

Rumeysa had already reached a height of 5 feet 8 inches by the time she was six years old. She described how she felt as “a child trapped inside an adult’s body.”

To reach her final height quickly, Rumeysa was put on medication during puberty. However, without it, she could have been taller.

Rumeysa’s life has been full of challenges

Throughout her life, she has battled with a range of health issues, including a heart defect and scoliosis, both of which required rods and screws to be surgically implanted into her spine. Due to her rare medical condition, she had to be educated at home in between treatments.

“It was not an easy journey. I didn’t have any friends because I was so different to children my age, but I made it,” Rumeysa said.

She is unable to ride in a car, therefore she is carried in a van instead. Additionally, she requires custom furniture due to the fact that her height prevents standard options from being suitable. Dresses are her go-to for layering, but she needs to have them tailored to suit her correctly.

Air travel seemed to be impossible for her until Turkish Air granted her permission to reserve six aircraft seats in advance so that she could lay across them on a specially designed stretcher.

Pursuing her career as a web developer

Rumeysa uprooted her life and moved to California so that she could pursue a job as a web developer. This was the very first time that the stretcher had been utilized for an ordinary passenger on a commercial flight.

“I did get some looks but other passengers came over to check I was OK and I really enjoyed my flight. I understand people are curious about me but as long as the stares aren’t too long it’s OK,” Rumeysa said.

Rumeysa’s approach toward life

Rumeysa has been extremely open about her life with Weaver Syndrome and seeks to raise awareness about the disorder that has impacted practically every part of her life.

“I also want to show people that you shouldn’t judge others by how they look. I believe a negative thing can be turned into a positive one,” she said.

She has more than 38,000 followers on Instagram and has made countless public speaking and TV appearances.
