CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Jade Doheny was our special guest on Larry’s Look this morning. You ask who she is. Her bio tells a lot:

Jade Doheny was born in the People's Republic of China and came to live in the United States when, at two years of age, she was adopted by an American family through China's Waiting Child Program. A confident and creative child, Jade began modeling in fashion shows and for online boutiques when she was three-years-old. When she was five-years-old, she completed two major print projects - a medical training manual for The American Red Cross and a non-fiction book, "The Athletic Body Puzzle" by Dr. Joe LaCaze.

Since then, Jade has also enjoyed acting in a car commercial and infomercials airing nationwide, as well as being featured as a model and dancer in "Charlotte Takes the Runway." Jade's biggest acting role, so far, has been the lead in a short film "Snickety Snack."

She enjoys performing solo Chinese dance and acrobatics at various festivals and events, as well as horseback riding, swimming, art and reading. Jade trains many hours each week in gymnastics and would like to be a famous gymnast, actor, model or fashion designer when she grows

Jade is now eight years old and has other amazing talents, like arts and crafts and creative writing. In fact, she authored a book and did all the illustrations!  She talked about her new book this morning and displayed some of her beautiful creations too.

If you like to buy her book or any of her homemade crafts, head to the Common Artisans Festival. Here's the link:  www.epicentrenc.com/event/commons-artisans-are-here/995
