Do you have issue with your height?

You may have. If you belong to softer gender, you may have more.

But, have you ever wondered what it is like to have height more than everyone else?

Meet Maci Currin. She is a 21-year-old from Austin, Texas. She holds the world record for having the longest legs. He height is 6 feet 10 inches. One of her legs measures 53.3 inches and the other 52.8 inches.

Her height poses her some peculiar challenges. Despite her remarkable height, it is difficult for Maci Currin to find clothes that fit her lengthy limbs. It is a daily struggle for her.

"Finding clothes is hard," she shared. "I shop at American Tall mostly, although they don't have any long pants that fit me. I have to get them custom-made, which costs around $250 for one pair of jeans. I'm not made of money, so I only have two pairs of jeans that fit me right."

The challenges do not end there. Maci has to battle with unkind comments on daily basis. She faces comparisons from strangers, with some likening her to characters from horror movies like Slenderman.

"If someone is going to hate, they hate because they don't understand," Maci said. "I've always been taller than everyone since pre-school. I've always been a head above everyone."

Maci says she sometimes ends up hating her extraordinary height. "At the time, I hated my height because it was the one thing kids could target me for," she said.

There are instances when she feels proud. "People will often be like, "you are so beautiful, do you model? As a 6ft 10inch female, my job is to empower other tall women."

Despite the hurdles, Maci embraces her uniqueness and strives to empower other tall women. "The best perk would have to be that no one is like me. I am unique," she expressed.

Maci has encountered difficulties in her dating life, with men expressing discomfort due to the height difference. "I currently have no interest in dating, but all the times I've dated, especially with men that are shorter than me by a significant amount, has just felt off. Like they were almost embarrassed of me."

Despite holding the world record for four years, Maci remains humble. "Having that title doesn't have a meaning to me anymore. If anyone wants to take the title from me, I'd be more than happy," she stated.
