HANDAN, China (NBC/RTV) - A woman from northern China says she can write in different languages and different directions with both hands at the same time.
It's a skill she said she discovered by accident while struggling to cope with large quantities of English-language homework.
She found she could complete repetitive tasks faster by using both hands and attributes her gift to being able to focus on two separate things at the same time.
In daily life, the 24-year-old is right-handed.
She earned a college degree in English over the summer and now works as a translator.
She says she can write in English and Chinese at the same time and can also write vertically with one hand and horizontally with the other.
