WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Dissecting a cow’s heart.

Most would find that disgusting.

But for Sophia Herbert, a fifth grader at Charter Day School, it was a dream come true.

Her experience was paid for with money from her successful Etsy business.

Sophia raised $600 with her "STEM Art by Sophia" shop.

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, which are subjects Sophia loves.

With the money, Sophia attended the Envision: NYLF (National Youth Leadership Forum) Explore STEM camp on the campus of Wake Forest in Winston-Salem.
