2018 American Girl of the Year Luciana Vega

I received the product below in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

American Girl constantly amazes me with launching new and current dolls. The newest doll is 2018 Girl of the Year Luciana Vega. Luciana is an 11-year-old girl who dreams of being the first person on Mars. Her out-of-this-world storyline is an inspiring tale for girls to relate to. With STEM being such a popular subject today and more and more girls becoming interested, it is fitting that there is an American Girl out who loves science.

As parents, we all want our kids to dream about what they are going to be when they grow up and follow those dreams as they grow. Genders are mattering less and less as both boys and girls are doing jobs that were typically for one gender or the other. Boys should be able to be dancers just like girls can be engineers. Luciana is a great example of what it means to be a strong, confident and creative girl, who also loves all things science.

My daughter is young still but she is one of a kind already. She is a girl who plays hockey but also loves her dolls and princess dresses. I want her to grow up and realize that she doesn’t have to do just stereotypical girl jobs.

Since American Girl is a company that always goes the extra mile with their dolls, Luciana is no different. American Girl actually worked with NASA, including a task force of advisors (scientists, astronauts, and more below) who helped ensure the accuracy and authenticity of Luciana’s world—from her story and products to a STEM-based educational program in partnership with Scholastic and Space Camp.

My daughter loves her new Luciana doll and even at 6 years old, she understands what the big deal is about a girl going to Mars. Luciana is a beautiful doll on the outside but definitely someone who is confident.

From her beautiful, almost hidden, purple streak in her hair:

To her amazing silver boots, which honestly I wish I had:

Luciana rocks her appearance and owns it. I tell my daughter every day that she doesn’t have to ever conform to what is normal and she should always be herself. Luciana might be my favorite doll so far. Something about her self-confidence, curiosity and creativity is just amazing and inspiring.
