Wildine Aumoithe, the world’s shortest woman

Wildine Aumoithe

“Height is just a number,” says Wildine Aumoithe, who recently set the Guinness World Record for being the world’s shortest non-mobile woman. “Honestly, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do to cross something off my bucket list,” the high school senior said.

Wildine Aumoithe say, “I’m feeling great. My family was ecstatic because I am the first person in my family to hold a record.”

The Miami native is only 73-cm tall, and her short stature is due to an extremely rare type of dwarfism known as SADDAN dysplasia, which requires her to move around in a motorized wheelchair.

“What short is it? “It’s just that we do things differently; it may take us a little longer to complete something, but we’ll get it done,” Aumoithe said.

She’s had a habit of challenging expectations since she was born. Doctors thought she wouldn’t make it through the night, let apart to her 18th birthday when she was born.

Aumoithe says she has never been bullied because of her dwarfism, but she could not comfortable outdoors people staring at her or taking photos of her without her permission. She has her own YouTube channel where she openly discusses her life and genetic condition.

She also plans to attend college and become a pharmacist because “she doesn’t know any little people who are pharmacists. Maybe they can break a record for that as well.”
