We absolutely love hearing about young girls helping to move the #BUILTBYGIRLS movement forward, which is why we're having a major fangirl meltdown over 10-year-basketball phenom Jaden Newman.

The sixth grader attends​ Downey Christian School in Orlando, Fla., where she plays point guard on the varsity team. Yes — her skills are that fierce. During the school's first game of the season, Jaden stunned the crowd by scoring 57 points, reports Complex Sports.

The site shared Elite Mixtapes' Instagram video that shows Jaden in action and you have to see it to believe it.

Needless to say, Jaden's skills are at the peak levels of fleek. Her dad serves as the coach for the varsity team that his daughter's been a part of since she was in the third grade. Apparently, Jaden has plans to become the first woman in the NBA and she's already perfecting her career highlight reel, which includes scoring 63 points in a single game and beating NBA champion Stephen Curry in a shootout.
