Chinese Model Ai Weiwei Dies Of Over-Work

The obituary notice of Ai Weiwei, an online model in East China's Fujian province, has been widely circulated in cyber space, generating sorrow at the loss of a young life and retraining the spotlight on health concerns of young workers. In 2006, she joined the Julong Network, where she gradually became a star model.

According to the sources, Chinese young and cute model Ai Weiwei died on May 14, 2011 due to extra work. She was a popular online model and the deputy managing director of a local media company. The death of overworked Ai Weiwei, an online model in China, has highlighted the need to care for one's health instead of working too hard.

A sociologist with Xiamen University, Zheng Qiwu said that "It's a highly-competitive society, everyone is trying to grab every opportunity". According to Zhu, Ai left her hometown in Jiangsu province for a performing career when she was 16, and she worked at part-time jobs to pay for her study at an art school. Barely 22-years old, this online model Ai Weiwei had really got her priority wrong.

She gained fame as a "football baby" in the promotional campaign for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and as an icon of an online game. "Working overnight was very common for her," said Zhu Xing, Ai's agent, added the model used to work without rest for three consecutive days.
