Broadcaster a voice for the blind


Dong Lina's voice is soft and appealing. It's hard to notice that she is visually impaired while one savors the sound of her pure Mandarin.


The 29-year-old from Dalian, Liaoning province, may be the first visually challenged person in China who has been admitted to a university to study broadcasting. Despite many difficulties, she became a professional broadcaster and won the second prize of the National "Xia Qing Cup" Recitation Contest.


"Impaired sight may affect us psychologically, but we can overcome the difficulties," says Dong, who has congenital amblyopia and lost her eyesight totally at the age of 10.
