MEET SAMMY: INVENTOR OF THE HEATED LACROSSE STICK

Sammy Wolfe was just 11 years old when a brilliant idea came to her. She was playing lacrosse and noticed it was hard to grip her stick because her hands were so cold and numb. So she thought… why not create a heated lacrosse stick? And she did just that. With a little help from her parents, she brought her invention FingerFire to life. So ÊTRE GIRLS asked her…

 

If middle school kids have a cool idea for a new invention, what would you tell them? What can they do to pursue innovative ideas at an early age?

“One thing to always remember is to never stop believing in yourself. Even if you are a young woman your ideas do matter. I have received many rejections throughout this (not over yet) journey, but that has never stopped me. You only need one “yes” to have your dreams come true. If you have an innovative idea you want to pursue, share it with friends and family to get feedback and suggestions. For example, the way I found the product development company I have been using (Enventys Partners in Charlotte, North Carolina) was by talking to a family friend that happened to know someone there. Connections are everything in life so make sure to share your ideas with others because you never know what might come out of the conversation.”
