Tiny Teen: Primordial Dwarf Teenager Hopes To Be A Star
SUBSCRIBE: bit.ly/Oc61Hj
TINY teenager Hannah Kritzeck loves singing, ballet and dancing to hip-hop, despite being just 39in tall. The 19-year-old was born with primordial dwarfism, a rare condition that only affects about 100 people in the world, which causes short stature and health problems, including the threat of brain aneurysms and a shortened life-span. Hannah, who wears children’s size four shoes, has to bravely face the reality of her condition, while also dealing with the normal teenage challenges. A new film follows Hannah as she prepares for graduation from high school, choosing a career, dreaming about boys and finding a date for her end of year prom. The bubbly teen, who weighs just over two stone, also spends her free time taking hip-hop and ballet classes and has her own voice coach. Hannah was adopted by Jackie and Larry Kritzeck at birth and grew up in Minnesota, USA, but she soon learned her normal teenage experiences were going to be different from those of her friends. Her condition comes with many medical needs including annual MRI scans to check for the possibility of brain aneurysms and because her teeth and mouth are so small she has dental implants. She also developed scoliosis and had two titanium rods placed in her back when she was young. But despite the limitations posed by her condition, Hannah has never let it get in the way of her passion for dancing. * Little and Looking for Love is on Wednesday February 11, 9pm, on TLC
