BEIJING, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Shi Yue, a 29-year-old "xue ba," or straight-A student, holds degrees from top universities in China, but is much more famous online as a live streaming host who promotes healthy video gaming habits.

Nicknamed "Nv Liu," Shi started editing and narrating video games on the internet while studying architecture at Tsinghua University and Peking University, and then became a full-time live streaming host after graduation.

Shi was selected as one of 100 "good young netizens" and recognized as a role model for young Chinese for introducing viewers to the gaming industry and the science, knowledge, culture and history behind it, and for promoting healthy gaming habits.

"Nv Liu has passed on much positivity to her 2.6 million followers," said a statement issued by the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League of China and the Cyberspace Administration of China, which organized the "good young netizens" campaign.

All 100 winners, who are between the ages of 14 and 40, were selected by both internet users and campaign judges.

Li Ziqi, a well-known food blogger, is also among the "good young netizens."

Li has posted over 100 videos online to teach her audience how to make traditional Chinese food. Her recipes are closely connected to the seasons and festivals of the Chinese lunar calendar.

The statement praised her work for combining the rich food culture of China with new media presentation and for promoting Chinese culture.

The list of model netizens also includes activists advocating the public interest, cartoonists and editors promoting knowledge and kindness, and citizens who fight internet crimes and illegal content.
