Female Welder Wins Acclaim for Sharing Life, Skills Online

A young female welder has attracted over 500,000 followers via a live-streaming platform by sharing knowledge about her profession, the tools she uses and her daily life.

Tang Qisha, 27, was born into an impoverished family in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality. By 20, she chose to become a welder in the area, earning a good salary.

Five years ago, Tang heard a shipyard in east China's Zhejiang Province was hiring workers. She and her husband, who is also a welder, went to join.

Tang gets up at 5 a.m. every day and works until 7 p.m. Welding is a tough job which requires workers to endure great hardships. Her feet, legs and face all have scars as the sparks easily burned her skin, leaving her clothes dotted with holes.

"Now the weather is cool, and the working environment is relatively comfortable. Summer is the most difficult time for me as I have to work in a cabin where the temperature is above 50 degrees."

Tang said she previously posted online videos about her welding gear as well as working conditions. She received many emails from netizens who wanted to consult her about the techniques. Hence, it occurred to her to broadcast her work live.

"I talk about my work and life during the live stream. Meanwhile, I study and discuss welding techniques with viewers. We support each other."

In her introduction to the live-streaming platform, she writes: "I have devoted my youth to the shipyard and the country's shipbuilding industry. Although I am busy every day, I am happy and I believe my work is meaningful."
