Profile: Chinese ex-model's life shines on in near-blindness


"Keep your body straight when you are walking, and remain this way when you stop at the end," said Wang Leilei, an entrepreneur and ex-model, as she demonstrates how to walk the catwalk at an art school in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province.


Currently in her forties, Wang remains elegant and graceful in her every move, making it easy to forget that she suffers from near-blindness.


Wang began her career as a model at the age of 16, but six years before that, she was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, an eye illness that causes a gradual loss of eyesight.
