The fifth grader said there’s one small piece of advice she keeps in mind when trying new things, “My mom taught me this phrase, there’s no such word as can’t and you can do anything if you try.” “I want to help and do as much as I can,” she said. For Annie, however, the project isn’t about her. “It’s not that hard actually, it’s pretty easy, it’s normal to me since I’ve had this my for whole life and so I kind of get used to it,” explained Annie, “it’s not a big deal to be honest.” After her mom started sewing masks for those in need, Annie decided to try it out. Annie’s mother Kim Myers adds, “Annie has never thought of it, anything as a big deal, she’s just like this is it and she’s always been incredible about saying okay this is what I’m going to do, how do I need to do it to fit my situation?” With little to no experience, Annie set a goal to sew 10 masks, and she sews with just one hand. Annie Myers is a motivated 12-year-old who loves her dog Sammy.last_img
