Not long ago Chen Siyuan made headlines for her ability to write with both hands at the same time, penning a different language with each.

Recently, she appears to have expanded her abilities and now simultaneously writes with both her hands and her feet.

Her preferred subject matter is Chinese poetry, which she pens in both Chinese and Roman characters.

As if that isn’t remarkable enough, each appendage transcribes a different literary selection.

According to Chen, the process is quite mentally exhausting as it requires a significantly higher degree of focus than typical single-handed, single-subject writing.

She’s committed to further developing her ability and exploring its full potential in hopes of helping others in both their daily lives and loftier pursuits.

Chen said, “Maybe it can bring some new results in education and scientific research. I think this is very meaningful.”

She first started to share her unique skill among those living in her town of Handan, which is located in China’s Hebei province.

Chen says she discovered her talent while trying to finish the loads of English homework she’d been assigned at school.
