A 22-year-old deaf girl in Beijing distinguished herself among 50 candidates for the Semi-final Contest for Miss Universe of China and made her way into the final round, Beijing Times reports.

After graduating from Tianjin Polytechnic Institute last year, Yang Ge, who lost her hearing because of medical poisoning to cure a fever when she was only one year old, now works for an advertising company in Beijing in costume design.

She impressed members of the review committee and spectators with her self-confidence, intelligence, and outstanding performance skills during the semi-final round, which was held in Beijing last Wednesday.

She will attend the final round next weekend.
