Author: admin

Meet Ms Qi: 73, retired teacher, backpacker and Internet sensation! This intrepid silver, who shares that she calls her 92 year-old mother every day, has taken to social media to turn traditional Chinese notions on the roles of elders on their head.

With digital news platform Pear Video as her medium, she asks the question: “Why do elderly Chinese people have to do housework and look after their children and grandchildren? We should have our own lives.” The folks at Pear Video followed her on her recent trip to the Chinese town of Quanzhou, where she lived in a dormitory with other students and saved money—the video went viral with over 11 million views and thousands of comments.
