Renata is my first non-celebrity Tall Lady profile. What’s special about her? Aside from being my cousin (accompanied by my brother in the pic above!), first of all, she reaches the requirements of Tall Lady, standing at a proud and bold 5’11”. And, like many other Tall Ladies, it took her a little while to embrace her height- which she says she now worships.
The “CN Tower”, as she has been hilariously nicknamed, is currently a student finishing her second year at Western University in London, ON. She’s brainy with beguiling beauty and can boast the ability to tower over friends and crowds alike. (I’m aware of the excessive alliteration. Deal.) The best part about it? She can do so without stressing out her feet (and back) in those heels. Sure, they look great at times- but for a night out? They are a bigger pain than a positive.
I’m sure all, if not most, Tall Ladies can identify with the tough time we had growing up and being taller than the rest of the kids in the class. Being accused of failing a grade or two for the enhanced stature doesn’t come close to outweighing the joy of people who now say they wish they had her height. Like so many of the things that are uttered during our school years, add that to the echoes in our mind that we roll our eyes or contentedly sneer at.
For the gentlemen who look up at women like Renata in admiration from a slightly lower altitude: I asked Renata if she would date a shorter guy and while she states it’s not her preference, it’s not a– say it with me now– deal breaker. So there is hope when it comes to the possibility of true love! Aw.
So, yeah. My first Tall Lady profile is someone related to me. You think it’s genetic?
