Li Qunqun, a post-95s girl working with a fresh food delivery center in Beijing, puts a dozen of packages in an icebox on the backseat of her electric motor, and starts her day on July 9.
The daytime delivery girl turns to a livestreaming host at night, and interacts with her fans through singing, dancing, and chatting.
Li earns about 20,000 yuan ($3,028) a month through her hard work, and uses most of her earnings to support her family.
Watching World Cup while enjoying crawfish has become a new trend this summer, with crawfish orders jumping to a new high, especially after 9 pm. When asked whether the night orders worried her, Li smiled and said most night orders are assigned to male drivers and she is asked to deliver at night only in the neighborhood. "The city is much safer than we image," she added.
Although Li is not a professional dancer — she learned most of the moves through self-taught videos — Li won the hearts of more than 30,000 online fans, with almost 10,000 of them showing up every time when she starts a livestreaming show. "I like her positive attitude toward life," one of her fans said.
Li began to earn a living in Beijing five years ago and intends to stay in her dream city as it offfers better opportunities. "Food delivery is a tough job, but it's a stable work," she said. I plan to launch my own business and do livestreaming part-time, she added.
