Jyoti Amge (born 16 December 1993) is an Indian actress notable for being the world's smallest living woman according to Guinness World Records.[1]

On December 16, 2011 ‒ Amge's 18th birthday, she was officially declared the world's smallest woman by Guinness World Records with a height of 62.8 cm (2 ft 0.6 in). Her restricted height is due to a growth anomaly called achondroplasia.[2]
