The smallest school student in the world - Jyoti Amge

She has achondroplasia, a growth anomaly, that has restricted her height to 23 inches (58cm), and her weight to 11 pounds (5.25kg). Jyoti is smaller than the average two-year-old child. She has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia and won't grow any taller than her current height. Due to her size, Jyoti has to have clothes and jewellery made for her. She sleeps in a tiny bed and uses special plates and cutlery to eat, as normal-sized utensils are too big. 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.
