Sienna's Thoughts on Growing Up with Primordial Dwarfism
Primordial twin Sienna's situation is atypical, in that while she is smaller in stature than most people, and her limbs are still proportional to her body, unlike other types of dwarfs. She also grew up with a twin sister who is not a primordial dwarf, making her situation even more complex.
So how does Sienna describe her appearance to other people?
"I just try to explain it really slowly and easily to people to try to make it clearer," Sienna says. "Sometimes they don't understand what I am trying to say or something, so they ask my twin sister."
Sienna is used to people looking at her curiously, but it does not make her live her life any less joyfully.
For those who try to stomp on her happiness or make her feel bad, Sienna has a message.
"I want them to know if they see a little person, they should be happy with who they are and just deal with it," Sienna says.
