Hi, My daughter is 17 yrs old and she is 5'9.5". I am 5'8" and my husband is 6'2". She is done growing now, but based on her growth I would guess you might get another inch or two. Your doctor may be able to give you a better estimate. She stopped growing a year or a year and a half ago. You never know though. Good luck with pursuing your modeling career!
