I heard somewhere that the average height for women is 5'6". Your at a good height though. I wish I was that tall. At your age, you can still grow taller.

I stopped growing when I was 14. I think that girls stop growing either when they're 14 if not definetely 16.

You can still grow till about age 18. My neighbors daughter had a growth spurt at age 17.

Really? How tall did she get to be? I guess people can still grow after they're 16. I always thought girls stop growning when they're either 14 or 16.
