Beijing, Dec 5 (IANS) A woman in north China's Hebei province has a unique talent which she accidentally discovered in high school when she was in a hurry to finish homework - the ability to write with both hands simultaneously.

Chen Siyuan, a 23-year-old resident of the city of Handan, said her gift came not from hours of practice, but the need to finish her homework on time, reported Xinhua.

"When I was in high school, I unconsciously wrote with both hands while trying to finish my homework in a hurry," Chen recalled.

"My classmates were curious and tried to imitate me, but none of them succeeded," she said.

Chen, who later obtained a college degree in English, said she can even write Chinese with one hand and English with the other.
