There's something to be said about putting yourself out there. That's exactly what 8-year old Jordin Phipps did when she donned a University of North Texas t-shirt and made a motivational video that her mom uploaded to the university's Facebook page.

In the video, young Jordin shared her promise to do her best, respect her teachers, pay attention, and work to excel. To date, her video has over 75k views and she has racked up a nice $10,000 scholarship to attend the University of North Texas in the year 2030. Not bad!
