Look out Stanford, you got a strong applicant coming! Meet, Liu Xiaoping, a girl from Suzhou, China who at the age of 14, is already in the midst of an internship at Apple. She was just a villager in middle school when she was discovered by a local recruiter. According to an Apple spokesperson, “Xiaoping was chosen for her work ethic, attention to detail, and tiny hands that could be quite useful in assembling LCD screens.”
Her dedication to her internship can be seen by the fact that she often works 15 hour shifts without a single break. Looks like someone is gonna get a great Letter of Rec!
Sadly, some people are feeling threatened by Xiaoping and want to get her internship taken away from her. Jealous human rights groups have started a campaign saying that internships like Liu’s are “Manipulating Child Labor” and an “Abuse of Power.” Talk about salty!
We’re rooting for you Liu, you’re making us proud!
