Have you seen this kid? Well, if you have, you’re not alone! Over 60 million viewers have watched in amazement as 6 year old Jaliyah Manuel shows off her incredible basketball skills! Jaliyah, who’s mother is white and father is black, says that Lebron is her favorite player, and earlier this week she actually got to meet him – and HE recognized HER! Not only that, but lots of people are calling her the next Steph Curry! Whether it be Lebron or Steph, it seems she works as hard as any NBA player, even going to the gym seven days a week. When she’s not playing ball or doing school work, Jaliyah, who lives with her family in Louisiana, loves being a big sister to her baby brother. As young as she is, she also spends time inspiring others. Jaliyah is already giving motivational speeches to students to encourage them to work hard and dream big!

If you have never seen this girl at work, check out this video! And if you have… I bet you want to see it again!
