Handless 7-Year-Old Girl Wins Handwriting Contest by mydream23(f): 7:16am On May 09, 2016
A seven-year-old student born without hands has won a US national handwriting contest.
Anaya Ellick from Chesapeake, Virginia, does not use prosthetics. To write, she stands to get the proper angle, holding a pencil between her arms.
Her principal, Tracy Cox from Greenbrier Christian Academy, describes her as an "inspiration".
"She does not let anything get in the way of doing what she has set out to do," says Ms Cox.
"She is a hard worker and has some of the best handwriting in her class."
The girl reportedly beat 50 other competitors to get the special-needs category prize at the National Handwriting Contest.
This category rewards students with an intellectual, physical, or developmental disability.
Competition director Kathleen Wright told ABC News that her "writing sample was comparable to someone who had hands".
This is what her winning entry looked like:


Sponsors of the contest Zaner-Bloser said they planned to award each student $1,000 (£690).
They tweeted a picture of the student, happily holding her trophy.

Having no hands was also not an obstacle to 30-year-old pilot Jessica Cox.
In 2013, we reported on her inspirational example. Also born without hands, she has been able to drive a car, fly a plane and play piano - all with her feet.

This is incredible. If there is one thing I like about Americans it is their never say die attitude.
If this child was in Africa, you will see her in bus stops, car parks, or traffic points begging for alms.
May God help the disabled persons in our society and make them useful for themselves and the entire nation. Hit like if you agree

@lalasticlala, this thread deserves FP to encourage and inspire the disabled, that disability is not inability. We all need encouragement and inspiration, but they need it more. Thanks.

Great, her story is very inspiring. Initial failures and handicaps is part of the process of success if you do this

Which kind mumu thread title be this? angry angry angry angry angry angry





A handless person cannot participate in a HANDwriting competition. Same way a Legless person cant participate in FOOTball..

If such a person can, then its just a WRITING competition and not a HANDwriting competition.





#ClickBaitingCunts.



@ Topic: The Girl is pretty first of all..

Secondly, if a handless and legless man can drive, that I believe nothing in impossible.
