Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in

A Texas-born woman was once dared to not cut her nails until they grew to three inches. Ayana Williams took the challenge to the next level and decided to not cut them for the next 23 years.

As a result of her commitment to the cause, Williams won the Guinness World Record for having the longest nails. It's proving a tough task to dethrone Williams as YEN.com.gh understands that she's retained her crown once again.

She recently admitted to Guinness that it takes her much longer to complete routine tasks and pulling up her pants is a chore on their own.
