Gong, born in Yueyang city at Hunan province, moved to Beijing in September, 2016, carrying only a bag on his back. Gong currently works as a fitness instructor at a Hosa Fitness club in Dongzhimen and earns a monthly salary of 4,000 yuan ($579). Unfortunately, due to a foot fracture not long ago, Gong was out of work and had to live in the club's three-square-meter warehouse. Since he was unable to do anything, Gong spent his time on books and music. "I want to come and visit Beijing, which I have never had the chance to," he said.
