No one defines fearless more than Sofie Dossi!

You may recognize this multi-talented star from the big stage of “America’s Got Talent” (where she snagged the coveted Golden Buzzer back in 2016), Brat Tv’s “Boss Cheer,” or her self-titled YouTube channel (which has racked up over five million subscribers to date). We recently caught up with the coordinated, adrenaline junky during our Instagram Live series Friends From Afar, where she talked about her new podcast “Kiss and Tell” (including the fact that Kio Cyr and Jaden Hossler will both be guest starring in the next couple of weeks), her dream acting role, future music plans (*wink, wink*), and so much more!

Sofie also opened up about the scariest part about teaching herself contortion at the age of 12. She may make the bends, twists, and turns seem seamless, but the flexible performer has definitely experienced a few frightening fails along the way!

“One time I was throwing a knife, with my feet, at a foam target, and I was doing a handstand a little too close to the target… when it hit, it hit sideways. It bounced off and came back at me super close to my face. Then after that I decided I’m going to throw from a really far distance,” she explained.
