Early life and education
Ervin was born in Turlock, California and by age 14 was 5'11". She grew 9 inches taller over the next four years. Ervin attended college in the Bay Area of California and studied theater arts and business management.
Ervin ventured to obtain roles as an actress but gave up on the idea when she was constantly offered roles as an alien or monster. Later she studied law and exercise physiology. Tired of the office life that she had pursued and unhappy with her weight, she joined a gym but strived for an unrealistic size 0 physique that almost resulted in ending her life. Eventually she developed a healthier body image and began to view herself as a super-sized version of Super Woman and became a personal trainer devoted to instilling realistic expectations for herself and her clients. She tours the world participating in height comparison photo shoots and regular modeling jobs and posts her tour on her website.
In 2011 she was crowned the World's Tallest Professional Model by Guinness World Records.

There is also a video about the making of the article in which Xiao Wen and Ervin appear.
