People come in all shapes and sizes, and no matter the category people find themselves, it should not be a determinant to how far they will go in life.
This is the story of Megan Grannan, a teacher who is 3 feet 3 inches tall. Grannan, who was born with a rare form of dwarfism, is shorter than her primary school pupils, Metro reports.
Briefly.co.za gathers that the 26-year-old teacher was born with Metatropic Dysplasia, an extremely rare form of dwarfism with only around 100 known cases in the world.
Grannan said she is proud of where she is and will keep working hard to go even further.
Speaking about her pupils, Grannan said it is hard for the kids to realise that she is older than them, adding that she holds a lesson about differences so they could know who she is.
Grannan, who was bullied in middle school due to her height, added: "I’m very proud of where I have got in life and where I’m going. ‘I hope to go even further and prove everybody wrong. ‘Never give up on yourself, keep positive and keep going and you will achieve your dreams."
Reacting on Facebook, Cathryn Shardlow said: "Children will just ask "why are you short" then when you tell them they will say "oh OK". If you are honest and direct then children love that. It's a shame when they are taught hate and prejudice x."
Jennifer Anne Brookes said: "Doesn’t matter how short she is as long as she can get the job done."
Alex Page said: "Good for her !!. Great to see more positive stories about disabled people x."
According to Tracey Knox being strong is not about height, but about one's personality. She said Grannan's mouth is her best weapon.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a woman identified as Martina Coogan disclosed that her male co-worker refused to work with her because she was fat.
Coogan who used to weigh 127kg said she began to gain weight in her late teens and saw her waistline expand.
The 47-year-old woman said she hit 127 kilograms in her late thirties and wore a size 22.
