Miao said that Yubo sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night to write because he is so passionate.
“Once he got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, then decided to practice writing. She went straight to the pen and wrote, telling her parents that she would go to sleep after she finished writing a word,” she said.
