Lauren Bath believes it's important to stand tall. That doesn't only mean literally standing tall—which she does, at a towering 6'5—but also being confident in who you are, and proud of your height.

That spirit earned Lauren the title of Miss Tall International 2016. And for the next year, she is officially an ambassador for the vertically-gifted.
