A Handless 7-Year-Old Girl Won The National Handwriting Competition. Disability Is Just A State Of Mind

Updated on 9 May, 2016 at 4:20 pm By

Anaya Ellick, a 7-year-old girl born without hands believes that she is no different from any other kid. Undeterred by circumstances, she participated in the National Handwriting Competition in the category for students with special needs and nailed it by winning it.

She was awarded the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellence in Manuscript Penmanship.

 

She is a vivacious and a no-excuses type of young lady.

She doesn’t use prosthetics.  To write with perfection, she determinedly stands at her desk and grips the pencil between her forearms. From that angle, her each block letter is flawless.

 

Her principal Tracy Cox says,

“It’s easy to complain about things that are hard, but you look at a little girl like her and we have no excuses for digging in and doing hard work. Life is tough and we are going to be faced with challenges, but when you really apply yourself and have that determination, she shows amazing things can happen.”



 

Despite the disability, she delivered the most impressive handwriting and managed to beat 50 youngsters who entered the competition.

She deserves all the praise.

 

Bro, what’s your excuse now?
