Origin of Impairment
Congenital (hoyuenkei.com, 26 Nov 2019)

Impairment Details
She has paraplegia as the result of being born with spinal muscular atrophy. (scmp.com, 07 Dec 2016; hoyuenkei.com, 26 Nov 2019)

General
CLASSIFICATION CHANGE
Her classification was changed from BC4 to BC3 due to her impairment becoming more severe. She considered giving up the sport after struggling to adapt to the rules of the BC3 classification, but her coach and her family convinced her to continue participating in the sport regardless of her results. "I was devastated at first when I realised I had to move to a different category because my body was failing. But then I realised I still love boccia, and BC3 and BC4 are two different kinds of games." (scmp.com, 07 Dec 2016; eyesonhkbu.hkbu.edu.hk, 04 Dec 2015; hksi.org.hk, 2009)

OTHER ACTIVITIES
She posts videos on her YouTube channel that contain information about restaurants in Hong Kong, China that are accessible to wheelchair users. "I feel so happy that I can share some information that wheelchair users really need. I don't think wheelchairs should limit us." (CNN International, 04 Dec 2020)
