Profile: Visually impaired student sets sights on career in medicine


Instead of pursuing a career as a masseuse as many blind people do in China, Ye Jingfen, who is congenitally visually impaired, wants to be a doctor.


Ye, a college student from a mountainous village in the city of Lishui, east China's Zhejiang Province, secured good grades in the postgraduate entrance examination this year. In September, she will start pursuing her master's degree in traditional Chinese medicine at a university in Beijing.


It took years for her to "find a way out of the darkness," Ye, 24, told Xinhua ahead of the 31st National Day for Helping the Disabled which falls on Sunday.


In her own words, she always expected to "spread light into the lives of others."
