Hi Napenda

I'm afriad there aren't ways that one can grow vertically. Some people do still get taller after the age of 23, but it is fairly unlikely. In the mean time, just make sure that you do regular exercise and eat a healthy balanced diet to make sure that your body is in good shape and don't get too hung up about your height.
