This 32-year-old woman was mistaken for a child due to his small stature.

Her height of 51 inches seems unfortunate to some but it didn’t bother her at all. Despite what people say, she managed to have a huge and positive personality that helped her achieved her dreams. Ren Pei Yun used her condition to build up her confidence and boost her self-esteem.
Among her family, she is the only one with this abnormal height which they didn’t see as a problem until she was refused entry into elementary school. They went to numerous hospitals and and tried to look for ways to help with her growth but nothing worked.
At the age of 9, she finally enrolled after heavy pressure was given to the school. At first, she became extremely self-conscious because she’s the shorter of them all but eventually gained the realization that her height didn’t define her.
When she was 21, she tried her luck in the entertainment industry and was recruited by the Beijing Heart of the Disabled Art Troupe. It became her second home as she felt so completely accepted and welcomed.
