Smallest woman happy with title

Hatice Kocaman, 21, from Kadirli, Turkey, revealed that she had always been bullied at school for her size, but she now feels very tall after being named as the world’s smallest.
“I always hoped that one day the world would recognise me. It was hard when I was a child because all my classmates used to tease me for being small,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

“I hope to travel and to meet lots of people including the tallest man in the world. God made me the way I am and I am proud of that. I hope I can find someone who will love me one day,” she said.

She lives with her parents Ibrahim and Hatun. “She was a normal baby when she was born. Then we noticed she was growing more slowly than other babies,” her mother said. Doctors said she had a bone disorder caused by faulty genes carried by her parents.

Hatice, who weighs just 6.8 kg and has never been able to find work, stays at home with her parents.
