Shopping festival opens up job opportunity for Deaf People

A group of people with hearing disabilities stepped into livestreaming this year “Double 11 Shopping Festival” in Hangzhou, China, reports China Daily.

Shen Zhike, who started his livestreaming business in Hangzhou, hopes to provide better opportunities for people who are deaf or hard of hearing, like his younger sister. With the combination of commerce and internet, an increasing number of people with hearing disabilities are willing to express themselves, becoming more confident and optimistic, and are on the way to change their living conditions.

Double Eleven (11.11), the Singles’ Day Festival is a shopping event initiated by Alibaba and adopted by other e-commerce platforms and retailers in China.
