New American Girl Makena Williams

Makena Williams as seen on Instagram


There are three new American Girl dolls in the new World By Us series. Makena Williams is one. Makena has a new head sculpt and a two-strand twist hairstyle. She is described on the American Girl website as follows:

Makena Williams has a passion for fashion, and clothes are a way for her to connect with others. But when Makena experiences racial injustice in her own neighborhood, she decides to post more than her OOTD (outfit of the day)—she figures out how to use fashion to speak up about injustice. Her set includes:

  • An 18" Makena™ doll with brown eyes and medium-length dark-brown textured hair that comes in a twisted style
  • A pleated skirt with a pink-and-purple ombre print and a glittery elastic waistband
  • A black graphic tee with the saying “See me, hear me, know me”
  • Three golden butterfly barrettes
  • A pair of pink shoes
  • Makena’s See Me, Hear Me, Know Me book that includes ideas for addressing racism, real girl profiles, and reader questions
Other accessories include:
  • A black moto jacket with golden butterflies and gemstones on the front
  • A purple patterned purse with a shoulder strap and a front flap
  • A notebook with a cover that says “We Rise by Lifting Others” that Makena uses for her fashion sketches
The doll and book can be purchased or Makena can be purchased as a bundle with all accessories.
