When the number of followers increased, people started direct messaging me. From eighth grade kids to middle-aged men, I get at least 2,000 messages every day. I found that they feel comfortable telling me about their problems. I never knew I could make such a difference. I answer every text message, hope my little effort can help them. On the other hand, I am a very normal person. I can be upset and moody at times. But when it comes to putting a smile on someone’s face, I try my best to be selfless.”
