Fang Meifang, deputy head of the No.2 cable laying squad of Danyang Power Supply Company under State Grid's Jiangsu Power Company, has been the only female in the male-dominated power transformation unit since she was transferred there in 1993. Since then, she has participated in laying over 1,000km cables, installed more than 8,000 cable heads, and participated in the installation, operation, renovation and expansion of more than 40 substations and over 1,000 switch board rooms of customers, never having any failure due to construction quality issue. She has won the national May First medal and has been honored as a national role model, a Jiao Yulu-style Party member of the State Grid, and a Woman Pacesetter. Fang Meifang was titled the Most Beautiful Employee in Jiangsu on May 11, 2017 and was elected as a deputy to the 19th CPC National Congress on June 30.

Although she is just a common construction worker, Fang Meifang always thinks for others. After she was elected as a deputy to the 19th CPC National Congress, she still works at construction site, and the callus on her hand is as thick as ever. To accelerate the construction of the Danyang-Lvcheng section of the No.357 national highway, the cables in that section had to be relocated, but it rained very hard from 3:00 to 8:00 am on July 2, and the construction site became a swamp, and some cranes were bogged. Fang Meifang and her coworkers arrived at the site at 3:00 am and worked in waist-deep slurry till 8:46 am. They were all covered in slurry when climbing out of the well.

After she was elected as a deputy to the 19th CPC National Congress, Fang Meifang has studied the important speeches made by President Xi Jinping more systematically, and wrote down and remembered the 100 keywords about his state governance. She also studied with the 18 members in her team at the morning meeting every day.
