Gelgi said that she liked being different from everyone else and it was interesting and made her feel special.

The teen asserted that it was one of her biggest dreams to be awarded with this record and being a record-holder was a very amazing thing.

Gelgi said that it also provided her with easy access to high places, and looking down at people from above was not a bad thing either.
