Think of the tallest friend you have. Odds are, he or she doesn't hold a candle to 16-year-old Marvadene Anderson.
Marvadene, whose nickname is "Bubbles" because of her bubbly personality, is the tallest teenager in the world at 6'10". Could you imagine being three inches taller than basketball super star LeBron James?
Bubbles is now the star of the Rutgers Prep High School basketball team. Some of the other girls on the team are only as tall as Marvadene's elbow! Marvadene is originally from Jamaica, but left her home and family to receive a better education at Rutgers Prep and join their basketball team -- a sport she never played before.
Bubbles is only a sophomore, but college recruiters already have their eyes on her. And get this -- Bubbles may not be done growing yet since she's so young. The tallest woman ever was over 7'7", so there's a chance that someday Marvadene could surpass that.
