Wang Zi'an, an 18-year-old blind teenager in Baiyun District, southern China’s Guangdong Province, was enrolled by the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, one of the top music colleges in the United Kingdom, after several years of efforts, reported.

Like other applicants, Wang passed rigorous examinations before receiving his offer, and obtained a partial scholarship for his outstanding performance, said Liu Fei, an employee at the conservatoire, adding that only ten applicants from the Chinese mainland were accepted by the college this year.

Although Wang was born premature and diagnosed with amotio retinae at birth, he showed distinct musical talent when he was young. He started to learn to play the piano at the age of 4 and the viola at 13.

Without the ability to see, Wang had to spend more energy and time in practicing. Fortunately, he has made it.

Wang said that he will continue to study music composition and education and wants to be a music teacher and composer after graduation to help more people like him to realize their dreams.
