Denise Stoopen

Department: Man and Mobility


Coming to terms with the fact that you’re about 50 centimetres shorter than your peers takes time, as Denise Stoopen knows. She was born with Achondroplasia. When a fellow student asked her if she felt her limited height gave her a different perspective on the world, she started sharing her experiences through Smalltalkers, her own Youtube-channel. With her great sense of humour and great candour she answers every conceivable question from viewers, proving that yes, some things are different for her, and no, this is not all due to the fact that she is short.
