'I've always been taller than everyone since pre-school. I've always been a head above everyone.

'There was this one instance where I was playing on the playground - I think I was in second grade, and someone asked me if I was a middle schooler because of how tall I was.

'At the time, I hated my height because it was the one thing kids could target me for. [But] the best perk would have to be that no one is like me. I am unique.

She continued: 'People will often be like, "you are so beautiful, do you model?"

'As a 6ft 10inch female, my job is to empower other tall women.'

'Finding clothes is hard. I shop at American Tall mostly, although they don't have any long pants that fit me.

'I have to get them custom-made, which costs around $250 for one pair of jeans.

'I'm not made of money [so] I only have two pairs of jeans that fit me right.'

Despite her fame due to holding the world record, Maci says she isn't worried about retaining the title.

'I have had the world record for female longest legs for about four years now.

'Having that title doesn't have a meaning to me anymore.It's more of a thing of the past. If anyone wants to take the title from me, I'd be more than happy.'
