My main duty is to serve the people

I joined the CPC when I was 20. The competition was intense, and only a few outstanding students were selected. I applied when I enrolled in college, but I finally was admitted the Party just before I graduated.

The school's Party branch not only considered my academic record, but also my social activities. Only people with distinguished performance in every respect could be chosen.

The Party branch in my hospital organizes Party activities occasionally, including study of the Party's latest documents and medical papers.

Every year, the hospital has about 10 sessions of volunteer work, including providing free medical services in rural areas and giving lectures to improve public awareness of health issues. CPC members are expected to participate in those activities and to contribute more than nonmembers.

When an earthquake hit Sichuan in 2008, killing more than 80,000 people, we went to the disaster area and saved many lives. That was one of the times when CPC members rushed to the front line and became role models. As a member of the CPC, it's my duty to serve the people. As a nurse it is also my duty to serve the people. I believe the situation is the same in other professions.

In 2014, I recommended a colleague for CPC membership. The application process was just as strict as the one I went through in school. Applicants have to be outstanding and pass all the training sessions and exams before they become our comrades.
