Along the middle reaches of Xiangjiang River, Hengyang City is located in central China's Hunan Province. The city is over 3,000 kilometers away from Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

On a winter morning, Yabai, a Lhoba girl, goes to work as usual. "What can I do for you?" she asks people who comes here for claiming permanent resident permits, or hukou, with smile. Then, she explains and solves their problems related to household registration.

Yabai comes from Mainling County, Nyingchi of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region. In May, 2019, she began to work for Huaxing Police Station in Hengyang City, mainly responsible for household registration.

After graduation from Loudi Vocational Technical College in 2018, Yabai failed to pass Tibet's civil service exam. "Later, I took part in the civil service exam for ethnic group college graduates from Tibet and passed." she says. “Because I studied in Hunan Province, I like working here. Rice noodles, a kind of popular rice flour product in Hunan Province, are one of my favorite.”

"At the beginning, we worried that she might not adapt to local life,and arranged an experienced policeman to help her." says Peng Tangsheng, the deputy director of Huxing Police Station.

"Yabai has won praises from both colleagues and local people for working hard and serve well." Peng says.

Yabai studied tourism management in collage, so household registration was an unfamiliar field for her at first. Therefore, she learned diligently from colleagues. "At first, I didn't understand local dialect and related work. Therefore, I always asked my colleagues." Yabai says. "No matter how busy they were, they always helped me."

Yabai usually has dinner or goes to watch movie with her colleagues after work. They introduce natural scenery and culture of their hometowns to each other, such as Hengshan Mountain and Shigu Academy in Hunan, Nanyigou senic spot and matsutake of Nyingchi… Although Yabai lives far away from her hometown, she doesn't feel lonely.

Now, family members of Yabai know her current life and aren't worried about her. "My boyfriend now is preparing for the civil service exam of Hengyang. We decide to settle down here after he passing the exam." Yabai says.
