A disabled woman in China, showed her family and neighbors that she can be a successful business person by selling apples on the Internet.
Guo Xiangge of Yuncheng, Shanxi, has successfully established her online business of selling apples, and operates her computer using only the chin and nose.
She has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy since birth. Xiangge cannot control her limbs and has difficulty speaking. She never went to school, but managed to learn how to communicate with the help of a friend.
Several year ago, Xiangge learned how to operate a computer by using her chin and nose. She became an expert social media manager and expanded her online presence.
Last year, she decided to open her own shop, selling apples grown by her family. Xiangge works on closing sales, while her family packages and ships the apples.
This month, Xiangge managed to sell around 800 pounds of apples.
