By: Allie Townsend

Meet Elisany Silva, who at 6'9'', is the world's tallest teenager.

The 14-year-old Brazilian teen who is so tall, she was kicked out of school because she had trouble fitting into the school bus. A news report tells Elisany's story and talks a medical specialist who speculates that the teen has a rare disease called "gigantismo" – a condition that causes the brain to over produce growth hormones. Elisany tells the camera of her wish to be a model, which at her height, would maker her the tallest model in the world.
