who: Anaya Ellick
What: Seven-year-old student Ellick Anaya was born without hands has won a US national handwriting contest.
Anaya Ellick is from Chesapeake, Virginia. To write, she stands to get the proper angle, holding a pencil between her arms.

IN MY OPINION: for someone with no hands beating 50 people is just WOW
