Teen with disability gains confidence from experience as popcorn vendor


A 17-year-old boy nicknamed Tao Tao with cerebral palsy has made positive attempts to achieve greater self-reliance through selling self-made popcorn on the street on his own, touching the hearts of netizens and winning him an education opportunity.


According to Tao Tao's mother Yao Chuanhua, her son was born with the disabling condition. Over the years, she has continuously tried to train him to adapt and live as normally as possible.


As Tao Tao grew up, the idea of fostering his independence by selling homemade popcorn has brewed in the mother's mind. She taught Tao Tao how to make popcorn at home and helped set up a stall in Xiaoshan district, Hangzhou city of East China's Zhejiang province.
