MYRNA BROWN, HOST: A teenager in Texas has set two Guinness World Records, all without lifting a finger.
This month, Guinness announced 17-year-old Maci Currin of Cedar Park, Texas, has the longest legs for a teenager in the world.
At nearly 4½ feet long, Maci’s legs make up more than 60 percent of her 6-foot, 10-inch stature.
That distinction comes with a second world record: She’ll also be named by Guinness next year as the world’s longest-legged female.
Maci says her height is not without its challenges.
CURRIN: Going to public spaces, a lot of people stare and they take pictures without asking, and it’s kind of annoying.
And buying clothes that fit—huge challenge.
But she says she’s learned to embrace the upside of being that tall.
For example, her long legs have proven an advantage on her high-school volleyball team.
Maci said “I hope that tall women can see that the height is a gift and that you shouldn’t be ashamed that you’re tall.”
REICHARD: Own it!
BROWN: It’s The World and Everything in It.
