Livestream host with disability making a difference

While dealing with a disability herself, Zhao Yuan has succeeded in carving out a career in e-commerce. She has helped more than 2,000 other people with disabilities sell agricultural products.

Zhao, 50, was born in Jianghua Yao autonomous county of Yongzhou, Hunan province. Before she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in her 20s, Zhao was a teacher at a local school. Arthritis is a disease that causes permanent damage to the joints, especially the fingers, wrists, feet and ankles.

Eventually confined to a wheelchair, she had to leave her teaching post and started to make a living in business.
