Birthday: May 7th 1981
Hi there. My name is Lindsey. I am 6'3" and I love my height!!! I live in Florida and it would be great if I could be May's tall woman since that is my birthday month. I am a pediatric oncology nurse and love my job. My kids love me too and love my height. They like to climb me and have me lift them up high and hold them. If that makes them happy after a long day of chemotherapy then I am happy to do it :)
I also have a twin sister who is the same height! When I was younger it was difficult being tall but I held my head up high and was always proud of who I was. My mom always told me not to slouch and just be confident. So, that is exactly what I tried to do. Hey and no one ever forgets me which is a total plus too.
I have been very tall from a very young age. I had a big growth spurt and was about 6"2 at 15 years old. Kids were very mean at times but I decided I would take my height and put it to good use. I joined a dance team and made lots of great friends. Being in dance really helped me be very graceful and coordinated and I truly feel that that is why I am so proud to be tall today. I gained a lot of confidence in dance and almost every day now I have people who come up to me and tell me how well I carry myself and my height. I can be walking thru the grocery store and someone will come up to me and almost always asks me how tall I am or if I play basketball. I am sure you all get the same thing :).
I am always very confident in my responses to people now and never act ashamed to be tall. I also have a very supportive family. My dad is 6 foot 7 and both him and my mother always told me to be very proud of my height and to stand up straight. I am so grateful for that! They always told me how beautiful I was and if you think about it you really can't change it so you should just embrace it and be happy with who you are. I wouldn't change anything now about my height and although I have faced some challenges such as ignorant people making comments or some difficulties finding pants or shoes I have realized that I am special because being this tall also makes me unique and different.
