For most Filipinos, who are known for their “cute” height, 5’4″ or 5’5″ is already considered tall in the society. But in most countries, having a six-foot height is considered normal especially among teenagers.

A teen from Texas in the United States is recognized for her height and long legs as she sets two world records for having the longest legs in the female category and teens division as announced by the Guinness World Records recently.

Maci Currin is just seventeen years old but her height is already at 6’10″. Her left leg is 135.267 cm (53.255 inches) long and her right leg measures 134.3 cm (52.874 in). She comes from a family with tall genes.

Maci’s father is 6’5” and her brother stands 6’4”. However, Maci is taller than them. She told the Guinness World Records that every year since her childhood, she would grow up to 5 inches. Maci’s mom, Traci — who stands 5’7” — admitted that her daughter’s clothes requires much planning since clothing is not made for her size.

Since her leggings are custom-made because of how long they are, Maci wondered if her legs could make it to the world record. Then after doing a research on making it to the Guinness, she has made history with her long legs.

However, because of her height, Maci becomes a target of bullying in her high school. But when she reached sophomore, she decided to stop caring about what other people think about her height.

Now, Maci plays volleyball and has over 1.5  million followers on TikTok; with some netizens are surprised to find out that her long legs are not edited in her TikTok videos. She also has an Instagram account with over 56,400 followers.

“I hope that tall women can see that height is a gift and that you shouldn’t be ashamed that you’re tall,” she told Guinness World Records. “You should really embrace it.”

Maci is also planning to set another record when she study for college in the United Kingdom — the world’s tallest professional model.
