Even by NBA standards, that's impressive. This young woman is a full 2 inches taller than LeBron James.
But her height has come at a price: She's lost her friends and her sight.
The eastern Thailand teen remembers a tough childhood.
"I used to feel like a freak, school children used to bully me and call me names," she said, according to The Telegraph.
Duangdee's mother, Ji, first realized something unusual was happening when, at the age of 9, her daughter suddenly experienced a growth spurt.
"She looked different to her friends, and I got a little worried," Ji told the paper. "I took her to the doctor because I wanted to be sure there was nothing seriously wrong with her."
It turns out Duangdee had a hormone imbalance caused by a brain tumor pressing on a nerve. It also resulted in a loss of sight.
The brave teen requires expensive treatments every three months to control the tumor, but it's not yet known if her growth has stopped.
Duangdee eventually had to leave school, in part, because her schoolmates "were always so nasty."
"I was desperate to have some friends to play with but they all ignored me," she told the Telegraph.
Despite her misfortune, Duangdee is optimistic.
"I'd love to be like any other 19-year-old and live alone, build a life for myself and have fun, but who knows what will happen?"
In January 2009, Duangdee made it into Guinness World Records as the tallest girl, knocking off Brazil's Elisany Silva, who is a mere 6 feet 9 inches.
