Maci Currin is only 17 years old, but she already has two world records to her name. No woman or teenager has longer legs than her. Her left leg measures 135.2 centimeters, her right leg is nine millimeters shorter.
With a total length of 2 meters and 8 centimeters, the young lady from Texas literally stands out, even within her own family. For example, her mother ‘only’ reaches 1.70 meters. Father and brother come close at 1.95 meters and 1.93 meters, respectively.
Maci used to be bullied for her size: long legs. “But at a certain point, I no longer cared what others thought of me. From then on, it started better with me.”
The realization that she had exceptionally long legs came in 2018. Maci couldn’t find any leggings in the store that fit, so a copy had to be made to measure. For example, the question arose whether she would not have a chance for a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Maci mainly uses her social media channels to inspire fellow sufferers. On TikTok, she has already collected 1.7 million followers, and she always highlights her positive self-image there. “I hope that tall women can see their height as an asset. You don’t have to be ashamed about that, on the contrary. Be proud of it,” it sounds. It is now her big dream to grow into ‘the largest professional model in the world’.
