As one of the ninth batch of flood control and disaster relief youth commandos in Jiangxi Province, the youth commando of Jiangxi Dacheng State-owned Assets Management Co., Ltd. (“Dacheng State-owned Company”) has such an unusual member - Huang Xianda.
Huang Xianda is a doctoral student, majoring in Constitution and Administrative Law in Peking University Law School. He is an outstanding graduate (master) in Beijing, and a national scholarship winner. He was selected in the third batch of legal interns of the Supreme People’s Court. He also participated in the mass parade on the 70th anniversary of the National Day, and together with nearly 3,000 faculties and students of Peking University, presented the best wishes for the 70th anniversary of the founding of the motherland in Tiananmen Square.
But on the front line of flood prevention and disaster relief in Poyang Lake, like the other 136 team members, He is just an ordinary member of the ninth batch of flood prevention and disaster relief youth commandos in Jiangxi Province.

Since June, the flood in Jiangxi Province had been extremely severe, and all parts of the province had been affected by floods to varying degrees. In response to the call of the Jiangxi Provincial Committee of the Communist Youth League, Huang Xianda, working as an intern at the Jiangxi Dacheng State-owned Company, resolutely signed up for the youth commandos after learning of the severe situation of flood control and disaster relief, and rushed to the front line of Poyang Lake flood control.
In Huang Xianda's view, "seeking bitterness" does not only bring about boredom and torture, but the harvest and joy after hardship and sweat. No bitterness, no sweetness.

In Sanmiaoqian Town, Poyang County, in the flood control section of the three kilometers’ long levee of two villages of Madun and Donglang under the charge of Dacheng State-owned Company, Huang Xianda and his team members had witnessed the mornings and evenings by the Poyang Lake, rain or shine. From inspecting the levee with villagers, to communicating with the township cadres for advice, to reporting to the county leaders, every time he completed a task, he had gained new knowledge that he can never learn in the classroom or books. He realized the true meaning of an old adage - "Everything must be only done then been understood profoundly." Due to his outstanding work, Huang Xianda reported his work to Qi Hu, Minister of the Grassroots Construction Department of the Communist Youth League Central Committee, and was fully affirmed by Minister Qi.

After each task of patrolling the levee, Huang Xianda also actively participated in the construction of the Party. The Youth Commando of Jiangxi Dacheng State-owned Company was the first one of the 13 institutions participating in the flood control and disaster relief commando to set up a Temporary Party Branch. As the backbone of the Party, Huang Xianda was elected as the organization committee member of the Temporary Party Branch to assist the Branch Secretary Xiong Shaoyong to carry out Party affairs, and paired up with other team members to share the experience and thoughts in the task, helping each other to make progress. The Temporary Party Branch would organize a review and summary meeting after each task, in which team members actively shared the interesting things and experiences in the process of patrolling the levee, and coupled back the difficulties encountered and suggestions for improvement. Everyone expressed their love for the Party and patriotism based on their own experience, and they often reluctantly left the meeting until late at night. In the process, many were deeply moved and submitted applications for joining the Party.

Huang Xianda said that as a contemporary young man, he must have the ambition to be hungry, to be concerned about the country and the people, and to love and serve the country and the people. Only by going deep into the masses, deep into society, and deep in practice can we become qualified builders and successors of the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics.
