This is what 11-year-old Lily says at the end of her Kickstarter video. She invented a special cup for her grandfather, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease.
She’s an inspiring kid, trying to make a difference for someone in her life.
She has good advice for young people (and old people too):
“Don’t freak out if you screw up or fail, because you’ll fail a lot before you get it right.”
The only thing I didn’t really like about the Kickstarter video is when she’s trying to pronounce “polypropelene” (the type of plastic the cups are made of), and she gives up. Her father tells her how to pronounce it and she says, “Whatever.” I think I would’ve edited that part out of the video. I know she’s only 11, but it does make her seem like she’s not taking the whole thing very seriously. That minor criticism aside, I think she’s an amazing kid, and she’s lucky to have a supportive father.
