American Teen- Benjamin and Dominique

This is Benjamin and Dominique


The box gave information about each teen.

Benjamin:
 
Who Am I?
I'm not much yet, but I will be!  Take that to the bank.  I will have that big house, with the columns down the front, and the chairs on the porch and the money in the bank.  Will happen! DC's my home.  Dad's a university professor. American history.  He's cool. Mom. She's into church. All the time. Makes her happy, but me, I'm working! Dad says I need an MBA for my internet business. Well, when I need that MBA, I'll get that MBA! But right now things are going my way. And, it is happening.

Blogger's Note:  A NYC shopping is showing in the picture eventhough he is from DC.

 Dominique
Who Am I?
I'm a teacher...at lest I'm going to be.  I am SO excited...I've been accepted to Dartmouth College - on a scholarship! Everything is so great.  everyone is so happy for me. It's kind of been a dream of my Mom's, that I would go to college.  You know, Dartmouth, wow, its gonna be a lot different than East St. Louis.  St. Louis is ok but our neighborhood isn't so great.  Mom insisted we move here so she'd have enough money for my school stuff, but its real noisy here. City. You know. Not New York, but city.  Keep thinking of New England, and all that quiet snow. Cool. And then I'll come back and teach kid's like me here, kids who were kind of left. Dad disappeared when I was a baby, never heard from him, but haven't needed him! Mom did just fine. And I will too.

Blogger's Note: Even though Dominique is supposed to be from St. Louis her picture on the box looks like a corner in NYC.

  1. Wow! At last! Thanks for sharing. I am going to Google + this post and tweet it. Do you mind if I click it on Pinterest?

    I am working on a blog post about dolls with braided hair. These seem to be the only playscale dolls with "real" cornrows.

    Oh, everyone wants New York to be the default American city, lol. Shrug.
