“Well now this is slightly awkward” -looks away-

Amazing! We have two scholars this year who are exactly the same height, both equally tall! I wonder if there will be taller male scholars in the future? If you are taller than 185.5 cm, don’t hesitate to contact our Special Projects team for our directors to verify your height! You could also send in a request using this form.
