This 11-year-old girl just blew us away by building her own, glittery prosthetic and taking it to "Shark Tank"
Glitter makes everything better, especially when you’re an amazingly innovative 11-year-old girl.
Missouri native Jordan Reeves stole our hearts when she appeared on The Rachael Ray Show this week in front of judges from Shark Tank to share her creation — a prosthetic arm that shoots glitter.
So cool, right?!
Reeves, who was born with a left arm that stops just before her elbow, came out glitter arm a-blazing, and demonstrated how to shoot the glitter using compressed air. Reeves wowed The Rachael Ray crowd and the judges, who included Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec.
“You can never be sad with sparkles,” she said to kick off her pitch, and proceeded to share details of the invention like a seasoned professional.
She calls her invention Project Unicorn, and teamed with Born Just Right to sell Project Unicorn shirts to help kids with disabilities. The arm is made using 3D printing technology, an area Reeves is personally passionate about for its ability to help others like her.
But her talents don’t stop there.
Reeves also practices CrossFit, participates in Girl Scouts, and takes music lessons. She also works on supporting other kids who were born with limb differences.
Part of her success can be attributed to her parents, a constantly supportive force. Her mother, Jen Reeves, said that she has learned to focus on things that are important to her, like inventing.
We see a very bright future for her.
