What is Avril Haines’ height?

Although it has not been revealed exactly how tall Avril Haines is, many have guessed that she around 5ft 7 inches in height.

Some Twitter users have been wondering if she really is as tall as she looked in her recent address about the new role. The angle of the camera made her seem incredibly tall.

However, Haines was in fact standing on a box while giving the address, so she is not really 7ft tall.

Many on Twitter were keen to point out that she did not need this addition.

We are looking forward to see what Haines does within the new Biden administration. She said in her recent speech: “You know that I have never shied away from speaking truth to power.” With a powerful statement like this, Haines sounds like she is going to have little trouble acclimatising to her new role.
