Marvadene Anderson is a basketball playing teenager from Jamaica who has earned her way to a scholarship to play ball at Rutger Preparatory School in Somerset, New Jersey. Nicknamed “Bubbles” because of her good humor, Marvadene Anderson may look up to Michael Jordan as a role model, but if they were on the court together, she would be looking down on him since Anderson stands 6’ 11’’ inches tall and is still growing!

Marvadene Anderson says people think she plays college basketball already and are surprised when they find out she is only a sophomore in high school.  Since moving to the United States, the hardest adjustment for her so far has been the cold weather (which I can definitely empathize with). Other than that, according to Bubbles, finding clothes to fit her 210-pound frame and shoes in size 12 haven’t been easy either.

To put Marvadene Anderson’s height in perspective, Trend Hunter recently featured Eve, AKA Babezilla, the 6’ 8” bikini model. Already at 16 years old, Bubbles is 3 inches taller than her!
