Mikaela Stevens stands 37 inches tall. She was born with a rare form of dwarfism with which eight people in the world have been diagnosed. Three of the eight are in her family. This type of dwarfism causes the person to be legally blind. Even though she has had to make her way through life by adapting to life-changing circumstances, she is able to do so with an amazing outlook on life and what she believes she can gain from it.
