Height and bullying

Maci said that she has now embraced her height and appearance. But before, she was bullied a lot in school for her tallness. She said:

“I was bullied because I was taller than everyone. I guess they didn’t know how to process that.”

“Around sophomore year, I just stopped caring what people thought of me. And when I stopped caring, I wasn’t affected by anything.”¬†

She wants to be a role model for other tall women in the world and give them confidence. But her height does create trouble for her in everyday life. Clothing is a constant issue always. She said:

“Pants and leggings, I have to get them custom-made.”

Her mother Trish elaborated:

“Special occasions are an added challenge. You’ve got to really plan ahead.”

And Maci has to deal with constant and repeated staring from people around her. But Maci says:

“I hope tall women can see height is a gift. You should really embrace it.”
