She said: 'I am proud of being small. I love all the attention I get. I'm not scared of being small and I don't regret it.

'I'm just the same as other people. I eat like you, dream like you. I don't feel any different
Good attitude

Inspiring article. However, sometimes these cases leave me feeling sad/bad when people keep using words like "cute". They probably don't mean anything by it, b/c it's hard to see someone that looks like a baby and know it's a teenager. I see this a lot with some of the kids Phil works with. They are mentally on track, but have some physical disability. Because of how they look or sound when they talk, they are treated like they are slower, or younger, though they should be treated like the adult or young adult they are. I know someone who is very small and has physical limitations, not as small as this girl, but not bigger than my cats combined. People talk to her like she's a child when she's my age.

Wow, others are born at 58cm.

I wouldn't call it "cute" either. And I don't think at 14 years of age you would want to be called cute because of your size, either.

But she has a very strong personality. That's admirable.

I can't help but wonder whether if she had been born in a Western country they'd have tried 2,953 medical procedures to help her grow

If she or her parents elected for such an option would that be a bad thing?

not at all
they can choose to do whatever they want to

but it does seem that as a rule our society deals with anything that differs from the norm as freakish rather than bless-worthy

But she is a freak, in a purely value-neutral sense of the word.
