Beautiful and brilliant seven year old, Anaya Ellick, was born without hands but beat 50 of her peers to win a national handwriting competition.
Anaya is a first-grader that has shown to the world that nothing is really impossible.
This extraordinary student, holds her pencil in between her two arms and stands at her desk, in order to have the proper angle for her to write. She chose to teach herself this method rather than learn to use prosthetics.
The principal of Greenbrier Christian Academy in Chesapeake, Tracy Cox, told ABC News: ‘There is truly very little that this girl cannot do.’
‘She is a hard worker. She is determined. She is independent.
‘She is a vivacious and a no-excuses type of young lady.’
It was her principal who entered Anaya for the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellence in Manuscript Penmanship.
According to Mail Online, Anaya’s parents, Bianca and Gary admit, are incredibly proud of their daughter, who they said has always been precocious – tying her shoes, getting herself ready, and attempting to do things herself before asking for help.
Her story is truly inspiring as it continues to inspire the physically impaired.
