    A 10-year old girl from Columbia, Missouri, got the chance of a lifetime to join a workshop to design her own prosthetic arm, according to Today.com.

    Jordan Reeves, who was born without part of her left arm, was invited to join the Superhero Cyborgs workshop in San Francisco in January. Each of the kids involved in the workshop had an upper limb difference and were all challenged to turn themselves into a superhero. Jordan’s concept was to spray out sparkles.

    "I thought it was a really, really cool experience," she told Today.com. "I just got to be with people like me and let my feelings be shared and stuff."

    Although the workshop is over, Jordan is still working with her design partner, who is mentoring her to design a base to build the glitter cannon.
