Stand tall

When you say someone stands tall you mean they are confident and proud of themselves.

Examples:

Our athletes stand tall after winning many gold medals at this year's Olympics.

The critics thought the movie was awful, but its director stands tall as he heads for tonight's Oscars ceremony.

Take note

A tall order is something that is very difficult to do.

Example:

My teacher wants me to write three essays for next week. That's a tall order!
