The show was almost about to start and I was in charge of making sure not one of our 36 models were sans makeup and hair. Running around crazily in 3 inch grey patent heels, out of the corner of my eye I see a very cute girl talking to someone. I turned to look and all of a sudden I found myself screaming â€œOMG ITâ€™S NELLY YUKI!!!â€Â Being a major addict to GossipGirl, I couldnâ€™t believe my eyes; one of my favorite characters of the show was standing right in front of me.Â Nelly Yuki who is really Yin Chang, couldnâ€™t be more sweet and gracious after a random stranger screamed her moniker in a public setting, which I apologized for right afterwards.Â Though I wouldâ€™ve loved to sit down and hear her life story, I had to go back to hunting for models. When the show was over, I found my favorite Gossipgirl in the waiting lounge with whom I had a lovely conversation with and found out we were in fact the same age. Soon later, many of our guests who were also fans of Yin, were also having their mind blown with her presence and couldnâ€™t wait to have their pictures taken with her. Yin had to leave a little bit afterwards but I couldnâ€™t have felt more stoked to have met her.
