One of Guinness World Records’ most loved record holders is Jyoti Kisanji Amge, a bubbly 24-year-old from India who has held the iconic title of Shortest woman - living (mobile) since 2011.

We recently visited the 62.8-cm-tall (24.7 in) lady in her hometown of Nagpur to find out more about her extraordinary life as part of Guinness World Records' brand new Facebook show, Beyond the Record.

In this latest episode, our host Asha Leo talks to Jyoti to find out more about her life as one of the world’s biggest tiny stars.

"When I went for my treatment, the doctor told me that I have a limitation in the hormones and this is the reason why my height has stopped increasing," explains Jyoti. "The doctor told me that due to lack of hormones in the body, my height as well as weight will be invariable."

Although this condition makes certain aspects of life more challenging for Jyoti, who most likely will always depend on her family for care, she has an incredibly positive attitude.

"The best thing about my height is that I’ve become extremely famous worldwide. I get lots of attention everywhere I go," she says, smiling.

Over the years, Jyoti has met lots of other Guinness World Records title holders, such as the late Chandra Dangi (Shortest man ever), which she says made her very happy.

"I felt more inclusive and more satisfied that there is somebody like me too."
