Wang Yidi, who is hearing-impaired, has become an ambassador for her hometown's apples through dance.
Wang, 19, hails from Xuejiayu Village in Zibo City of Shandong Province. When she was three years old, an accident took her hearing. After receiving donations from society, in June 2011 Wang successfully installed electrical cochlear implants, returning her hearing. Since then, she has been grateful and had a desire to give back.
In 2019, Wang's father returned to his hometown to develop the apple planting industry. In order to extend sales channels, Wang decided to use her knowledge about new media at university and her dance training to give a helping hand to apple farmers.
So far, local apple farmers have received orders of nearly 50,000 kg of apples. She cannot use words to praise and publicize her hometown's apples, Wang said, but dancing could express her feelings.
