The teenager stands at 6 feet, 10 inches tall!
Maci Currin of Cedar Park, Texas, is a 17-year-old girl who can say something most other teenagers her age can't say: she holds the Guinness World Record for the world's longest legs (female) and the longest legs on a teenager.
Maci's left leg measures 53.255 inches (135.267 cm) and her right leg measures 52.874 inches (134.3 cm). She broke the previous world record held by Ekaterina Lisina of Russia, whose legs measure 52.283 inches (132.8 cm).
Maci was born at a length of 19 inches, and by the time she was two years old, she was 2 feet, one inch tall. She stood at 5 feet, 7 inches tall by the time she was 9 years old. Her family is not on the short side either; her mother is 5'7", her father is 6'5", and her brother is 6'4". Maci is the tallest member of the family at 6 feet 10 inches.
Maci really became aware of how different she was when she stopped being able to find leggings that fit and started getting asked about custom-made clothing. She says she got bullied as a kid—not for her long legs, specifically—instead, it was her height that brought her negative attention from peers.
"Around sophomore year I just stopped caring what people thought of me and once I just stopped caring I wasn't affected by anything," she said.
Maci uses her height to her advantage and is a star member of her high school volleyball team. She hopes to move to the U.K. for college and has a goal of becoming the world record-holder for being the tallest professional model in the world. She embraces her height and hopes she can inspire other women to love themselves for their own unique beauty.
As a world record-holder, she is well on her way to making her unique mark on the world. Maci has 1.6 million followers on TikTok and has fans from all over the world who follow her along on her long-legged adventures.
"I hope that tall women can see that height is a gift and that you shouldn't be ashamed that you're tall—you should really embrace it," said Currin.
