After coming out of the polling booth, Amge told PTI, “I have voted today with my entire family. I want to appeal to every voter to cast vote as well as it’s our duty.”

She added, “I always come to vote in this school, the place where I completed my education. My teachers from school always come and meet me when I am here. My teachers have supported me just like my family.”

About Jyoti Amge

In 2009, Amge was awarded the title of the ‘shortest teenager living (female)’ in the world. She was measured to be 2 feet 0.3 inches. As Amge was 15 years old at that time, she was measured again when she turned 18 years old. Amge then measured 2 feet 0.7 inches, thereby making her the ‘shortest female living’ in the world. Amge’s small stature is due to a condition of achondroplasia, meaning she will never grow beyond a certain height.

Amge also holds the record for the shortest actress in the world. She played the role of Ma Petite in the TV series American Horror Story.
