    Hello there -
    you can add me under 6′6 women.

    Very nice site - the best I’ve seen
    since Joerg’s tallwomen.org!

    I’ve linked to it from my yahoo-group
    and will do it too from the webpage.

    Keep up the important work!
    Josephine Anderson, 6′6

    forum for Tall people I know)

  3. 3 Nelda Sale

    Dear Website,

    My name is Nelda Sale and I work for Granada Television in London. I am making a documentary for ITV1 that explores the lives of tall teenagers in the UK.

    There’s no agenda to the film - it’s intended to be a straightforward, honest and non-judgemental approach to the topic. We hope to give people a chance to talk frankly about their situations, to share what it’s really like to be young and exceptionally tall.

    We are currently looking for contributors to take part and would like to follow people with a ’story’ to tell. If you would be interested in being involved or would like further information please contact me on 020 7633 2596 or at nelda.sale@granadamedia.com

    Many Thanks

    Nelda Sale

    I’m only 11 but i’m pushing 7 feet tall. Right now i’m 6′11″ and i am the tallest in my town. It’s a little wierd having to look down on everyone because your so tall and only 11. It’s also wierd having to duck through doorways. Other than that i love my height. It’s also really fun to be stronger than everyone else in your school because you can just pick them up if they’re annoying you. My doctor says i will be 7′6 and i hope he’s right because then i could play for the WNBA and be really good.

  13. 13 nadeem

    Hi, im 14 years old and already 5″10-5″11 not 100% sure but its around that, My uncle is 7ft tall and in a wheelchair :/. Im worried about my height to be honest, I want to grow around 6ft to 6ft 6 max! Im not sure if i will grow that much more because my voice has broke and im about 1/2 way thru pubity. I sorta wanna go doctors and see if he can tell how much is left, but if anyone could help me by telling me there height by 14 or estimating how tall i should be, really would help me in future. Thanks (btw good advantage of being tall is when your big built and tall knowone can touch you! :P , im stronger than my dad who is 5″10 and goes gym atleast once a week.)

    Her feet are a us mens size 14.

  30. 30 Pat

    I think you should add the late great Douglas Adams in at 6′5, author of the Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy series and other awesome novels. After reading several of his books I was surprised to learn he was such a big guy.

    6′5 is my own height by the way too. Nothing to write home about but it meant people always thought I was much older than I actually was as a teen - useful for buying drinks ;)
