A Chinese woman who quit her administrative job to become a cleaner is now the owner of two houses and cars.

University graduate Liu Xiaoli told Chinese media outlet Ding Duan Xin Wen (Top News) on Tuesday that it took her around six months to tell her parents about her career change.

“My son started going to school and my parents were getting older. I needed more money,” Liu, who formerly worked as an administrative officer, said. “After becoming a cleaner, I was scared to tell my parents, and I didn’t want them to feel ashamed.” 

A Weibo video posted by Ding Duan Xin Wen on Tuesday — which has already amassed over 5 million views and 66,000 likes — shows Liu cleaning the inside of a house while explaining her situation. 

After around half a year of keeping her job a secret, she finally revealed the truth to her family. Her parents eventually accepted her career change, which helped Liu become “more motivated to work” since the “weight was lifted off my shoulders.”

After working as a cleaner for two years, she is now the proud owner of two houses and cars in China’s Henan province. She intends on sticking to her current career despite taking 19-hour shifts, which start from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m.

While talking about university graduates interested in going down the same atypical path, she says, “As long as you can deal with hardship, earning money is possible.”
