They underestimate her abilites because they think her potiential matches her height. It bothers her because she constantly feels like she has to prove herself to everone that she is way more than just her height.
Her height has effctive her attitude because she uses her attitude to ignore her height. People tell her that she talks and acts feisty. Her attitudes makes her think “If I act big, I feel big”.
