A WOMAN whose rare medical condition means she’s only 39 inches tall has devoted her life to helping others. Kendra Gottsleben, from South Dakota was born with a rare disorder called Mucopolysaccharidosis, Type VI (MPS VI). The symptoms of MPS include short stature and degenerative joint disease, and it affects bone development and other vital organs. The South Dakota native was featured as an inspirational speaker at TEDxSiouxFalls, has written three books, mentored local young adults with disabilities and is involved in several local, state and national committees. Besides her active lifestyle, the 34-year-old is also passionate about fashion and says that “fashion is a way of expressing your attitude and your way of life and just another step towards independence” because, according to Kendra, people with disabilities often lose a lot of independence due to restrictions of their body. Kendra’s goal is to show others how they can persevere to make the best of tough situations, even in the face of lifelong challenges.
