Female Postgrad Customs Pair Feature on National TV
Zheng Sizhu []


Two female staff at Suzhou Customs Foreign Pest Control Laboratory in east China's Jiangsu Province recently appeared on national TV to explain about their jobs and share their daily routine with viewers.

Zheng Sizhu and Chen Jingyun both hold doctorate degrees in science. Zheng, who has worked at the customs office for 10 years, studied entomology. Meanwhile, Chen studied agricultural insect and pest control.

As part of the TV program Love Lasts Forever broadcast on Beijing TV last Sunday, the pair, both lively and personable in character, showed how they follow current fashion such as wearing ripped pants.

In order to gain the recognition from her family, Zheng had to convince her mother to understand and recognize her work through her own efforts over the years.

In interpersonal communication, Chen says she has romantic feelings just like everyone else, and they felt the need to explore the unknown world with the accumulation of their professional knowledge.

Although their work, which involves carrying out plant inspections and quarantines, is rarely known by many people, it differs little from any typical job.

The pair have a wide range of interests and hobbies. To overcome boredom, they visit popular websites or use apps. The only difference is that they are strict with themselves.

As a plant entry inspector and quarantine personnel, they have spent years handling insects. They work diligently, striving for excellence, and quietly dedicate their youth to the cause.

When talking about her ideal life, Zheng says that she hopes to name a species of insect after herself.

On the show, the guests were asked to quickly identify a nematode under a microscope, which they were able to do in just 10 seconds. This shows that the hard effort behind their work is unimaginable.
