Height is not a challenge – Dwarf model, Fatima Timbo Says

Popular Dwarf model Fatima Timbo, who is just 4 feet tall has said dwarfism poses no challenge to her and she would not allow negativity to define her.

The 21 year old British model spoke to BBC News recently about building her confidence as well as her work in inspiring others to feel comfortable in their own skin.

Timbo said she would not allow negative comments get to her or stop her from promoting body positivity for people with dwarfism.

“I won’t be defined by my height,” she says.

Timbo says she can’t change the way she looks or what people say about her – but she has changed the way she looks at herself.

She said modelling boosted her confidence, and now she wants to inspire others to feel comfortable in their own skin.

Timbo admitted that she felt that her height had no limit and as such the sky was her limit, has already built lots of fan base for herself as a budding Instagram model.

Timbo happens to be the only one suffering from the condition in her family.
