3-Foot Tall Model With Dwarfism Shatters Beauty Expectations With Gorgeous Photos


Ileana is a writer on the Original Content team. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Dru Presta was born with achondroplasia, a “form of short-limbed dwarfism,” according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

People with achondroplasia have short stature. Most women are around 4’1, and most men are around 4’4.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine also explains:

Characteristic features of achondroplasia include an average-size trunk, short arms and legs with particularly short upper arms and thighs, limited range of motion at the elbows, and an enlarged head with a prominent forehead.

Fingers are typically short and the ring finger and middle finger may diverge, giving the hand a three-pronged appearance.

Just because Dru has achondroplasia doesn’t mean she isn’t able to succeed in life.

Since Dru is only 3’4, she was bullied a lot when she was young.

She was made to feel like an outcast in her hometown, but she refused to let the criticism get her down.

On October 9, 2017, Dru shared the above photo and wrote:

Yes, my height is at my door knob. Yes I stand at 3 feet and no that doesn’t mean I not a capable of anything. 

This month is dwarfism awareness month and I take this opportunity to help educate and inform.

We used to be the butt of the jokes for centuries. We always were portrayed as more comedic in movies and plays. It took a us years and decades to be recognized in a serious role. 

Not many take us seriously, and many came up with harsh slang for us and for us to break out of this barrier took hard work.

Now imagine being a woman.

Being discriminated everyday for just your height, now you have to find a voice with 6ft people all around you and to take you seriously.

We work everyday to have our voice heard. To be respected in businesses. To discover and find the love for ourself after crucial days of being made fun of bullied. 

Keep going. Keep fighting. Make sure your voice is heard. 

I may be 3’9ft [sic], but baby my attitude 6’3ft.
