A seven-year-old girl born without hands has won a national handwriting contest.
Anaya Ellick, from Chesapeake, Virginia, does not use prosthetics. Instead, she uses her forearms to write.

"We want to say how proud we are of Anaya Ellick, a first-grade student at Greenbrier Christian Academy (GCA) in Chesapeake, Virginia, who earned the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellence in Manuscript Penmanship," Zaner-Bloser posted on Facebook. "Our team was honored to award Anaya her large trophy and a check for $1,000. Her determination and spirit is an inspiration to us all."
