Sofie Dossi Biography
On June 21, 2001, Sofie Dossi was born in Cypress, California, as the daughter of the family of Abir and Mike Dossi. One can imagine that at the time of her birth none of her parents expected her to have a career because of the malleability of her body.
Born as the second child of two, her mother works as a Pilates instructor, while her father is an entrepreneur who has his own company. Through contact with her mother’s work as a Pilates instructor, Sofie Dossi grew up and fell in love with body distorting activities such as dance and gymnastics.
As she developed in both media, she expanded her skills to the point of contortionism. When she was twelve years old, she fell in love with the work of Cirque du Soleil’s contortionist and pursued a career in that profession.
After self-training and continually improving her skills, Sofie Dossi brought her talents to America’s Got Talent in May 2016 at the age of 15. She participated in the 11th season of the show and made her first appearance in the second round of the audition.
Her first performance consisted of eating an apple and shooting an arrow with her feet, which was met with applause by the judges. Her second performance tipped the scales for the coveted live show, where she won the golden buzzer with another outstanding performance.
Sofie Dossi reached the semi-finals and the final of the competition, but she did not win but made it into the top ten of the show. It was not a complete disappointment, however, as her appearance on the show made her famous to the world, especially millions of Americans, and she took advantage of the attention by creating her own YouTube channel, Sofie Dossi.
Since the creation of her channel, in which she has uploaded various videos of herself showing various contortionist skills and other content such as vlogging and challenges, she has attracted over 2.7 million subscribers, with over 300 million hits of various videos registered on her channel. She also has a large fan base on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
If you have over two million followers and fans on the major social media platforms, you are basically a celebrity, and people, especially celebrity fans, want to know details about your personal life.
In this respect, Sofie Dossi is no exception, and attempts to find out details about her personal life have so far yielded few results. All we know is that Dossi cuts up the appearance of an individual woman, although it has not yet been confirmed.
Apart from her personal relationship with a friend, she has a brother, Zak Dossi, who is also a renowned YouTuber. She grew up with her brother in Cypress, California.
