For A 15 Year Old Asian

i am too tall for my age and nationality. probably, a height with 5'9 isnt too tall in european and american countries, but here in philippines, i'm like walking in a sea of short people. at first look, people admit that they think im in early twenties. so it's really insulting. i'm the tallest girl in our 4th year highschool batch. so, i'm the tallest girl in school. yeah, it's like such a title to hold, but i really dont like being tall.  i wish i just had an average height like everyone else. why? i dont like getting too much attention, everytime, i'm with my friends, i feel like i'm the most easy to spot because i'm towering over them.

i'm thin, so it's hard to maintain a good posture. of course, i'll look stupid if i crouch so i wont look that tall.

with the characteristic of being tall, it forbids me from wearing high heels. i really want to wear heels badly.

i like guys taller than me. so it's hard to find one. LOL. everytime in our prom nights, i always end up dancing with a shorter guy. looks awkward.

during assemblies, it stings to my ears whenever someone shouts : "fall in line by height". of course, i end up last.

BUT?!

just this year, i had a great realization. with the fact that i hate my height, i found a way to get use of it. i want to be a model. LOL. besides, i love dressups so it's perfect.  i want to learn how to walk on the runway and i want to wear different clothes. i hope i wont end up just dreaming about it. it really lifted my spirits up. LMAO

CodyGates - nah, 5'6 is not that bad! i bet when you're here in philippines, you'll tower among the people.

I just came along this by chance and you're like my twin or something. C: I'm asian, 15 and 5'9. I'm in the exact situation as you.

wtf is up with the tall asians D: I'm only 5'7" lol

I wish I was 5'9 am only 5'6 :[ and am 20

good to know there is sombody else like me.<br />
GOOD luck

good to know i'm not alone. thanks. :)

Good luck to you. I do understand how you feel. I am also a tall Asian girl. I is hard when you are younger but you will learn that it is not so bad. You will find advantages to being tall. It's not true in High School, but later you will find many men are attracted to tall girls. By the way, I understand what 5'9" is in Asia, but if you come to the U.S. or Europe you will find you fit in quite well. Once again, Good Luck.
