My name is Nali and I am a PARISite

I have officially decided I am moving to Paris. Being the fashion queen and hands down most gorgeous poupée on this side of the continent is awfully difficult. Canada is getting kind of dull for a city girl like me. I am tired of studying and video making and listening to my sisters chatter happily all the time. I don't belong in some silly public school district, I belong in a private modeling academy! Why does nobody realize my potential? I wish I was given a chance to strut the runway in Milan or Paris or London and just show the world how fabulous I am....

My mom says its a silly idea to move to Paris. Apparently there is not much of a demand for 18 inch tall models. I think that is just stupid. I could be a REVOLUTION in modeling! I mean, a miniture model strutting down a glassy runway surrounded by glamorous giants and flashing lights... sounds like an eye catching show to me. If Calvin Klein and Louis Vitton don't give me a job offer the moment I step of the plane to Paris, I must say I will be surprised. I am so much more confident and interesting than their other models. I would steal the show.

I explained this brilliant idea to my sisters, but only Felicity thinks its a good idea. This is rather disconcerting because she is a bit of a loop-headed idiot and I don't trust anything she says. Samantha, who I consider to be the smartest member of the family told me that it was a bad idea. She says that I will be lonely if I move to Paris. I guess that is kind of true. My mom does not want me to move either, because she needs me for her videos and would miss me if I jetted off to the other side of the world. The truth is, I would miss my family if I moved to Paris. They are really important to me, even more important than my modeling career. So I guess I am staying here in Canada for now. Still, someday, I want to travel to that amazing city and show the world what makes me so fabulous.

  2. Hi Nali! Paris is a beautiful city! Personally, I've always wanted to live in a rural setting. What about fashion designing instead of modeling? Maybe Anna could even help you sew some of your designs!

  7. LOL I love that.I have to agree with Anna in saying that I wouldn't want my doll to move away. And Felicity?! A Loop-headed idiot?! I like laughed SO hard there!

  8. Hey that was probably one of the funniest doll stories ever! You go Nali! A loop-headed idiot????? Hilarious. I love your youtube and everything!!! Its so cool. You should make a stopmotion of this and call it "Nali's Big Move" but make her stay at the end! That would be really funny!

  11. Hey Nali :)
    I think it would be a great idea to go to paris because:
    1. Paris is a beautiful city with lots of landmarks and such
    2. Paris is where models live and you'd be a great model
    3. French people speak french, so learn french 1st. Kay?

  20. Don't go nali! youtube would miss u :( but, I have to say that is a good idea...

  21. You would be a good model, Nali. You have so much confidence! But all your fans here would miss you so much! You should just start a fashion institute right here, where you can come up with your own things to model. You already have fans here, why move away to get new ones? But good luck with your fashion career! :)


The story behind it all....

In September of 2009, a pre-teen girl named Anna was searching youtube. She no longer used her american girl dolls. they were behind the closet doors, gathering dust. She reluctantly glanced over, then began to type in the search bar: American Girl Dolls. A video came up. She clicked on it. 14 coustumed dolls slid onto the screen and began to dance together, waving their arms and doing cartwheels. Anna was shocked. How could this be possible? This was.... Amazing. She quickly searched a few more. There were hudreds of videos, by usernames like stephenswodadancer, AGlovejess and girloftheyearstudios. Anna couldn't believe it. This new discovery was incredible! She ran to her room and pulled out her two dolls, felicity and samantha. She grabbed her camera. And, she began to film.

It is now four years later. I work on videos almost everyday, usually stopmotions. I have gathered quite a few veiws and subscribers on youtube, and I really appriciate when people comment on my videos. I have come unbelievibly far, but I still leave up those first videos from two years ago, because for me, those are the memories that I will always treasure. I am so happy that I can share them with you.
