A beautiful Ukrainian girl living in southwest China's Chengdu city became a hit recently on China's social media. She helped some local migrant workers buy train tickets home for the Spring Festival online. Netizens called her "the most beautiful foreigner in Chengdu."
The girl accidentally got to know that the migrant workers who worked at a construction site had not spent the Chinese New Year without their families for years, because they failed to get train tickets home. She decided to help them. After learning how to buy the tickets via internet, she successfully helped a migrant worker buy the train ticket. Knowing the news, other workers also came to her for help. Till now, she has helped more than 50 migrant workers get train tickets home.
The girl speaks fluent Chinese with a little Sichuan dialect. She has lived in Chengdu for five years. She likes to chat and play mahjong with the people in her community. With approachable character and lovely appearance, she is appreciated by the people around her.
