An unspeakable truth of Sophie Dussie

An unspeakable truth of Sophie Dussie

Sofie Dossi uses her body as an incredible instrument, showing that it's capable of things that sometimes seem impossible or that look like an optical illusion. The contortionist and hand balancing artist bends herself into positions that defy the imagination. If you don't believe it, head on over to her Instagram page, where her ability to shape-shift into a human pretzel is well documented. It's a serious trip like nothing you've ever seen before.

On top of being unbelievably flexible and ridiculously strong, Dossi has a genuine sense of humor, and will post videos of herself cramming into seriously tiny spaces or eating pizza with her feet. She even crashed a crowded In-N-Out Burger and proceeded to eat a cheeseburger with her feet in front of tons of people. Talk about a hoot!

But there's more to Dossi than her insane flexibility, her willingness to engage in goofy antics, and her serious strength. Dossi has all kinds of ambitions, in addition to the many awards and accolades the young performer already has to her name. So if you're curious about how Dossi came to be, read on. This is her untold truth.

When you first see Dossi doing that thing she does so well, you likely wondered how long she trained at an Olympic gym to be so flexible. Or perhaps you figured she went to some kind of special sports academy. But surprisingly, that's not the case — homegirl is self-taught. "I was 12 years old and watching Cirque du Soleil videos on YouTube seeing performers bending and twisting and thought, 'Hey, I can do that!' So I kept watching and started to teach myself," she revealed in an interview with Everly Mag. "I've always been naturally flexible but never thought it was anything unique until then." After that, she followed up with consistent training and practice. It sounds completely impossible, but it's totally true. What an accomplishment!

Dossi did start building some of her contortion skills when she trained in gymnastics and dance as a kid, but that was just the jumping off point. "I always loved gymnastics and dance and it was like combine those two together, plus my unique skill of having a flexible back," she shared in an interview with ABC News. She really just knew what she was born to do.

In 2016, Dossi was introduced to the world in a big way when she appeared on the wildly popular show America's Got Talent. She did well, too, moving all the way into the finals, which is not an easy feat! But clearly Dossi was up for the challenge, wowing the judges at every turn. People were constantly on their feet giving her riotous applause, and Dossi was there for every second of it.

Even though she didn't take home the ultimate victory, Dossi had a wonderful time on the show and looks back on it with extreme fondness. "America's Got Talent was the best experience of my life," she gushed in an interview with Everly Mag. "It pushed me beyond the boundaries of what I ever thought I could do." What an incredible adventure that must have been for her!

That's not all, either — Dossi got to live out one of the biggest AGT dream moments. "Getting the Golden Buzzer was the most euphoric moment ever," she continued. "It doesn't get much better than glittering gold raining down on you and a huge audience plus celebrity judges giving you a standing ovation!" We bet!
