Sister Lotus - early Chinese online star
Sister Lotus got attention, and criticism, when she started expressing herself in China's fledgling online community.
Sister Lotus was an early online celebrity in China. She first became famous in 2004 after posting pictures of herself on China's early social media sites.
But she was a slightly unlikely star because she became famous not for being exceptional, but for being very ordinary. She has been speaking to Yashan Zhao about the online bullying she experienced and how she got through it.
