Ever since her gruesome accident, she taught and trained herself how to use her feet to do things that normally requires both hands like putting on makeup, eating using chopsticks or even taking selfies, as translated by AsiaOne.

Though for the latter, she uses a special equipment where she mounts her phone around her neck.

In her videos, Li offers people a glimpse of what her daily life is like.

Other than live streaming, she also loves playing games and chatting with her friends through her mobile phone.

“A disabled person’s life can be quite simple and dull, but I can meet and make many friends through livestreams,” she said.

While she is getting a lot of recognition online, sadly, livestreaming is not really her main source of income. Reports from Chinese news outlets say that Li is currently working in administration.
