Zhao from China: Everyday A Girl #EDAG

By Yuhan Zou Amanda




This is the story of Zhao Danni for #EverydayAGirl, as shared by Yuhan Zou Amanda via UN Online Volunteers.





Zhao Danni is a 22-year-old Chinese girl. She study at Liverpool University and came back to hometown Chongqing to spend her summer vacation.





She found an internship in a business company which is located in the center of Chongqing. 




To avoid being late, she have to get up at 6:30am to catch the subway. After that, she will sit down on the same chair in the office room for more than 7 hours.




 After work, she will spend 30 minutes during the rush hours in the subway. 




Sometimes, if the tasks are really tough she has to take them back home to finish. While the others are eating hotpot, she is still listening to the online meeting. 





“Leave one piece of beef to me.” She says and continues to take some notes.
