The Real Mulan

The real Mulan is nothing like what we see in cartoons or movies. The reality in the industry is a beautiful unreality. Meet Liu Zhushan, an attractive young lady who could have easily become an “influencer” simply by posting her selfies in Weibo. But unlike most influencers who flaunt their extravagant lifestyles, Miss Liu chose to join the army.

She was posted to an armoured regiment. A pioneering batch of female tank crew. The stark difference in the before and after pictures may make some weep. Such is the reality of military training and the sacrifice that needed from the modern day Mulan.
