An 18-year-old high school student is standing tall as the world's shortest woman.

Officials from the Guiness Book of World Records went to India, measured Jyoti Amge and gave her the title.

The teen is 24.7 inches tall, shorter than the average 2-year-old, and smaller than her teddy bear.

Her height doesn't bother her a bit. Amge plans to go to college and then have a career as an actor in "Bollywood" movies.

The old record holder is an American who is three inches taller.
