I'm 13, all Filipino, and I'm exactly 5'3. Don't worry about being too tall or too short compared to your friends. What makes you different sets you apart from other people.
I'm only 5 ft. Flat (or 5'1" or whatever)) and that's probably shorter than the average 5'3". It's one of my many insecurities, especially since many of my previous shorter classmates are getting growth spurts and here I am bummed out. I don't know if it's because I'm underweight or because my mom is short and I got her genes...or both. If the latter is included in any case then huhu for me XD
