I'm from the grassroots. When I was unemployed, I worked at many odd jobs, carrying gas bottles, riding a tricycle with the help of the Party and the government, I became a community worker. From this unique perspective, I have witnessed dramatic changes for the ordinary people, especially the impact of Party policies on social welfare. They give people hope.

I'm a pragmatic person. I feel it is meaningful to work in special education. It gives me joy, too. Whenever I see the smile of a kid, a parent's smile, I see the Party's and government's love for them. It is the evolution from small joy to big harmony.

I'm a lucky person. And I was surprised that the little I did caught the attention of others. My responsibility is to attend this Party Congress, convey what I saw and learned here to my colleagues, and share with my students the spirit of the event.

Scientific Outlook of Development is bliss to those of us who live on the grasslands. We will coordinate relations between man and nature, economy and society, city and village. The conflict between man and animal lies in man.
We should subsidize programs to relocate our kids from grasslands to urban areas, as our elderly and working-age population decreases, so that pressure on the grassland will be reduced. As the environment is revitalized, production will increase and so will herdsmen's income.
