Zhuang Yan, a female cleaner in Lishan District, Anshan City, Northeast China's Liaoning Province, was elected as a deputy to the National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislative body, in 2017. 

Zhuang has been improving herself to better serve people since then. She conducted a lot of visits and investigations at related departments. Zhuang's suggestions have been becoming more targeted and feasible. 

She is responsible for cleaning up the garbage of about 800 local households and surrounding shops. When she had to leave her post and attend two to three day long group studies as a NPC deputy, she usually took over her colleague's shift for a few days in advance so that her duties could be fulfilled when she was absent. 

Receiving letters and visits from the public has become one of Zhuang's daily duties. She treats all of the concerns seriously. 

"People chose me as a NPC deputy for they trust me. I will express their voices during the NPC session, trying to do practical work and helping solve their problems," Zhuang said.
