After the founding of the New China, she continued to serve the people on the front of science. In 1979, the China Popular Science Creation Association was established (renamed CSWA subsequently). Ms Mailin served as the first secretary-general of the CSWA, and made an important contribution to the healthy and prosperous development of popular science creation. Making light of fame and fortune, Ms Mailin values career the most.
