Visually Impaired Girl Amazes TV Audiences with Her Rich Reserve of Ancient Chinese Poems


Wu You, a post-millennial girl with visual impairment from Chengdu, southwest China's Sichuan Province, recently amazed audiences with her vast memory of ancient Chinese poems and a series of outstanding performances on a TV show.

Wu's splendid performances on the stage of a TV show entitled Chinese Poetry Competition has not only earned her recognition from former Winter Olympic champion, Yang Yang, but has also made her name become well-known among country-wide audiences passionate about classical Chinese poetry.


The girl's interest in ancient poetry dates back to her childhood when she was a relatively introverted student who preferred to spend her leisure time while staying at home. At one point, the little girl had become completely enamored with the catchy tunes of children's songs and ancient poems played off of compact music discs her parents purchased to help divert her occasional boredom.
