At age 10, I think I was weighing the career choices of ballerina, veterinarian, or stunt horsewoman. Not so 10-year-old Cecilia Cassini - whose story was recently featured in a "Today Show" segment. At a her young age, Cecilia is already receiving a lot of interest for her precocious and adorable designs for young girls.
Cecilia, whose father is French, has been on visits to Paris many times since she was a baby. Her parents say she became fascinated with fashion design and designers - particularily Coco Chanel - at a very early age.
At age 7, she wrote an adorable letter to her idol for a class project (most of the other children wrote to Santa, Cecilia's mother says). You can hear more of the letter's contents in the video. My favorite line in her letter to Chanel was, "I notice you do not have a kids' line."
