Towering over her teacher and friends 16-year-old Marvadene Anderson stands 6 feet 11 inches tall making her the world’s tallest teenage girl.
Currently studying under a scholarship at Rutgers Pre-paratory School in New Jersey, Marvadene is terrorizing opposition teams across the state playing for the school basketball team.
Originally from Jamaica, Marvadene is five inches taller than her idol, the basketball legend Michael Jordan.
Marvadene, wears size 11 shoes, and it seems it runs in the family as her older sister, Kimberly, is 6ft 4in and calls her sister the “baby giant.”
“Marvadene is wonderful addition to the school and the basketball team here,” said JJ Quenault, 42, a teacher at Rutgers Preparatory School.
