Jyoti Amge, who is 19 years old, is official the shortest woman in the world, standing at just 2 and a half feet.

She is so small that officials boasted in the latest version of the Guinness Book of World Records they were able to put a life-sized photo of her inside the pages…well from her head to her knees anyway – it's still an astonishing sight.

On Thursday, Amge visited The Empire State Building in New York City as part of her world tour promoting the Guinness Book of World Records 2014 release.

She has confirmed that once she gets home to India after the tour she plans to go back and finish college.

After that Amge says she hopes to move to California and pursue an acting career.
