Rumeysa Gelgi, 24, has been named the tallest woman in the world by Guinness World Records.

Gelgi is more than 2.15 meters tall and was named the tallest teenager in the world in 2014.

Gelgi suffers from Weaver's syndrome, a very rare disorder that, among other things, causes a person to grow at an accelerated rate.

Due to her height, she is forced to move mostly in a wheelchair.

When Gelgi wants to walk, she does so with the help of a walking stick.

Gelgi is sober about her height and wants to educate other people about her disorder.

She says many people are "impressed" when they see her on the street, but the amazement turns to support once they meet her.

Incidentally, the tallest man in the world is also from Turkey.

The 38-year-old Sultan Kösen is 251 centimeters tall.

It had not happened since 2009 that the tallest woman and man came from the same country.

At that time, at 236 and 233 centimeters tall, the Chinese were the tallest man and woman on Earth, respectively.

The Guinness World Records calls it "an honor" to have Gelgi back in the record books.

The Turkish emphasizes that everyone should accept their own body and that you should be aware of your potential.
