Among the honorees is Mahepali, a political instructor for a tank company in a division of the Xinjiang Military Command who also serves as a deputy to the 13th National People's Congress.
The post-90s woman keeps pace with the times by exploring innovative theoretical learning methods, using a popular "mobile phone plus" platform to spread the CPC's theories. She is also known for her efforts to create a positive atmosphere in her team.
During her tenure in the PLA, she has learned how to drive armored vehicles and mastered a dozen types of military equipment. She has also taken responsibility for training soldiers and cultivated a combat force that was rated a "first-grade military training company."
Due to her excellent performance, she was selected as one of the "Most Beautiful Soldiers in New Era" this year.

Upon receiving the call on Lunar New Year's Eve, Chen rushed to Wuhan, capital city of Hubei
