This is Annie Clark. She's only seven and sadly she was born without hands. But that doesn't seem to pose much of a problem for her, because she's just won a national penmanship award. A handwriting award. Without hands.
Annie managed to write her way to victory in the content that was held at Wilson Christian Academy in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, snagging herself a trophy and $US1000 as one of two national winners in her category, reports the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
What's really interesting here is how she writes. She wedges a pencil between her arms — the same way she feeds herself and even paints her toenails — and somehow has enough dexterity to write. That requires some very fine muscle movement in her arms in order to create characters on the page.
