Yang Pei, who lost her arms at 9, never gave up, kept fighting and finally became an inspiration to thousands of people, reported news.cn on Monday.

Yang, born in Pingli county, Shaanxi province, lost her arms when she accidentally touched high-voltage cables at the age of nine.

The incident left her devastated and depressed, but her mother encouraged her to keep fighting no matter how hard the battle was.

Yang began learning to do everything with her feet--dressing, eating, doing chores, and other daily activities.

She started learning Chinese cross-stitching at the age of 15 and soon began receiving so many orders that she was able to sponsor her brother to go to college.

She became famous after participating in a popular reality show where she did cross-stitching with her feet.

Yang is often invited to colleges and organizations to tell her story and inspire more people.

Her dream was to start a business with others.

In 2014, a townsman invited her to join his start-up company focusing on food safety. Yang accepted the invitation and said "I hope I could bring the idea of health to more people."

The company's household device that can pour oil has been well received by the market.
