The sweet smile sometimes come in small packages!
She is about the size of a cat. With a height of just 1ft 11 in (58 cm), Jyoti Amge is dwarfed even by an one year old toddler (which may be over 75 cm (2.5 ft) tall and weigh over 10 kg (22 pounds), on average), but this girl is 15 years old. She has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia and won’t grow any taller than her current height. Jyoti is now fully grown and weighs only 11 lb (5 kg), but she seems to be happy with her size, because of the fame it brought her.
Despite this, she goes to a regular school in Nagpur, central India, where she has her own small desk and chair, and her classmates treat her like any other student. Jyoti is treated like a mini-celebrity in her home town, where people flock to meet her and some even treat her like a goddess. She is ambitious and hopes to work as a Hollywood actress one day.
"I am proud of being small. I love the attention I get. I'm just the same as other people. I eat like you, dream like you. I don't feel any different," she told Sunday Mirror.
"I would love to work in a big city like Mumbai, act in films and travel to London and America," said Jyoti.
Her plans have been partially achieved: she has just recorded an album with her favorite Indian bhangra/rap star, Mika Singh.
Her mum, Ranjana Amge, 45, said: ‘When Jyoti was born, she seemed quite normal. We came to know about her disorder when she was five.‘
