The achievement of the little girl who is a third-grader in Chesapeake area of Virginia, United States, is remarkable because she has found a way to be the best at writing despite the fact that she was born without hands.

Ellick was named the winner of the 2018 Nicholas Maxim Award, part of the 2018 Zaner-Bloser National Handwriting Contest, on Thursday, April 26.

The award recognizes students with special-needs who have developed an exceptional skill in handwriting. In 2016, the 9-year-old was also named winner of the contest’s print category.

“Anaya is an extraordinary young lady. Her tenacity continues to inspire all of us at GCA,” said Anaya’s Foundations Academy Principal, Tracy Cox.

“Anaya’s well-earned first place finish reminds us all what determination and hard work can achieve. We are so proud of Anaya and her accomplishments.”

During our Foundations Academy Chapel, Anaya’s teacher, Mrs. Becky Cannaday, shared a message on our character trait of the month, boldness, and on the importance of letting your light shine for God’s glory.

Mrs. Cannaday encouraged students to be bold and reminded our Gators that boldness does not always mean being front and center, but can also be shown by humbly standing alone in doing the right thing, even when everyone else is not. Mrs. Cannaday went on challenge students to respectfully love others and to not be fooled by the world into acting in ways that do not glorify God.
