Anaya Ellick-Greenbrier Christian Academy-released

This first-grader just won a prestigious award for handwriting even though she can’t use her hand, and writes with her arms instead.

Anaya Ellick was born without any fingers and thumbs but that didn’t keep her from scoring the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellence in Manuscript Penmanship.

By standing up at her desk and holding the pencil between her two arms, Anaya can create neat and perfect lines that are impressive for any seven-year-old.

“Anaya is a remarkable young lady. She does not let anything get in the way of doing what she has set out to do,” Anaya’s principal at Greenbrier Christian Academy in Chesapeake, Virginia, told WKTR.

The diligent child was given a $1,000 cash reward and a trophy at a victory celebration Wednesday morning.
