When she writes, she holds the pencil between her arms and also stands over the desk in order to get the best angle.
“Anaya is a remarkable young lady. She does not let anything get in the way of doing what she has set out to do.” Her principal, Tracy Cox, told CNN.
Her mother, Bianca Middleton, stated: “She ties her shoes. She gets dressed by herself. She doesn’t really need any assistance to do anything.”
