London, August 31 (ANI): A Brazilian teenager who stands 6ft 9in has been forced to leave school, because she cannot fit on the school bus.

Elisany Silva, who is from the Brazilian Amazon state of Para, is believed to be suffering from a rare disease which has caused her extreme height.

However, the 14- years-old hopes to use her height to her advantage and is interested in modelling - she will reportedly make her debut on the runway at a bridal show in Belem, Brazil, according to the Huffington Post website.

"It's hard when I'm inside home. I get distracted and hit the wood in the ceiling with my head," the Telegraph quoted Elisay, as telling local television.

She also said that she no longer traveled to school because she cannot fit on the bus. (ANI)
