As a kid, getting a new haircut or a new pair of shoes is literally the most exciting thing in the world. Partly because it’s something new, but mostly because you’re going to get to show it to everyone at recess…amiright?
This week, Anu—a 7-year-old girl from Birmingham, England—took getting a new pair of shoes to a whole new level.
In a video that has now gone viral and stolen the hearts of the Internet, Anu can be seen confidently making her way out to the asphalt for recess. On one foot she’s got a pretty pink shoe, and on the other—a bright pink sports blade prosthesis!
“Is that your new pink leg?” one girl can be heard asking Anu. Another girl wraps her in a hug that can literally be felt through your computer screen. Each of the kids on the playground circled around in awe, and totally embraced Anu’s newest addition.
Anu is seven and goes to school in Solihull. Look what happened when she showed her friends her new sports blade. It’s gorgeous!
