Photo taken in 2008 shows Deqen Yuzhen using a typewriter at the school for blind children in Lhasa, capital of Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region. Deqen Yuzhen, who was born on Sept 14, 1998, is the daughter of a herdsman family in Maqu county, Gannan Tibetan autonomous prefecture, Northwest China's Gansu province. Unfortunately, she lost her sight due to a serious illness when she was a baby. She was sent to the school for blind children in Tibet at the age of nine and transferred to blind children's school of Shanghai in 2014. With her gift for singing, she received the attention of Yu Lihong, a professor at Shanghai Conservatory of Music. Professor Yu has been tutoring Deqen Yuzhen on singing ever since. She held a concert of herself this June at Shanghai Conservatory of Music. [Photo/Xinhua]
