A young woman with brain paralysis in Yuncheng, Shanxi province has successfully established an online business selling apples, and operates her computer using only her chin and nose.
Guo Xiangge has been brain-paralyzed since birth. She can’t control her limbs and has difficulty speaking. Although she was never formally educated in school, she learned pinyin with the help of a friend .
In 2007, Guo’s brother brought a computer home, and she learned to maneuver it using her nose to type and her chin to scroll on the touchpad. She became internet-savvy, and expanded her social network online. Last year, she decided to start her own online shop selling apples grown by her family.
Guo takes care of the sales online while her family packs and ships the apples.
As of January, 2015, Guo has sold more than 350 kilograms of apples through online sales.
