(Minghui.org) I have been employed in my current job since 1998. I was already practicing Falun Dafa before I started working there. Every year, the company has the employees vote for the model worker of the year. When I was ranked “number one,” it was the first time that one person had received all the votes.

When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Dafa in 1999, my work assessment was suddenly labeled “failed,” simply because I practiced Falun Dafa. My previous record of “excellent” was removed and changed to “failed.” I was not in the running for “excellent worker” anymore, and was removed from the list of candidates.

This discrimination and injustice did not affect my work or cultivation practice. I've persevered and earned a good reputation through my outstanding performance and work ethic over the past 20 years.

When I advised a colleague to quit the CCP, he said, “Since I trust you, I will quit.”

The authorities came to my company this year to select a candidate to join the management team. There was no filtering of applicants this time. So, for the first time in years, my name was among the candidates.

I heard many compliments after the voting. One person said, “We all voted for you because you are a person of high ability and great virtue. It would be so unfair if you're not selected.”

Some people even came to say goodbye to me because they were sure I would be the one promoted. However, I wasn't selected, because I was not “politically qualified.”

My supervisor told me, “You had the highest score. We all recognize your performance and respect you. However, the president said you could not be promoted because of your belief.”

My office was packed with people when the news was announced. Many had tears in their eyes and said that it was unfair. I heard someone say, “The CCP is the worst if it can't tolerate such a good person as you.”

So I was ranked number one again after 19 years. It is proof that the goodness and integrity of Dafa practitioners are indeed recognized and valued in society, and for this reason, practitioners are overwhelmingly supported by people.

I am very happy because I saw people's awakened consciousness and the kind thoughts in their hearts.

The CCP's propaganda can deceive people for a while, but eventually they see the goodness of Dafa practitioners and will speak up for Dafa when they have the opportunity.
