The world is lucky to have prodigies, and nine-year-old Navaeh Woods is one of them. The brilliant kid is an aspiring fashion designer from Michigan who specializes in making beautiful outfits for dolls.
Her craft caught the attention of many and even struck Mattel, a very popular doll manufacturing company, Black Business reports.
The little girl in speaking with the media once said that she will like to be a fashion designer when she grows up.
It should be noted that Navaeh makes clothes for the barbies out of anything she could lay her hands on, she is that good at improvising. Socks, ribbons, and household items are her ready materials.
In talking about how her work went viral, she said she was amazed by it all, and how her friends help make it get public attention.
As a validation of her skill, Mattel sent her a box of dolls to design for, telling her that she could be anything.
"It made me feel special because I’m achieving my goal to be a fashion designer and that’s what I really want to do. So I can be famous and make stuff and encourage people to follow their dreams,” she said about the gesture the company made.
The nine-year-old kid is working on her own business startup called SaSha See Amazing and also working with the company on a Barbie advert.
The little girl hopes one day she is able to design for people and her works on runway shows.
