Adam Gilchrist who is known for his participation in Australian cricket team, has came up with a video message lauding an Indian student who is working as a front line medical worker in Australia during this COVID 19 pandemic. The cricketer encouraged her to keep doing her service and have a huge shout out for her through a selfie video.
Sharon varghese from Kottayam in Kerala is a registered nurse in Australia since March month. After graduating from the university of Wollongong, she wanted to enroll herself in a hospital where she knew COVID 19 patients were being treated. At the time she joined, the Corona pandemic forced the entire world to go into a lockdown. However, Sharon joined in a aged-care facility in Wollongong where healthcare workers from far off places could not reach. She worked there as a junior nurse while she was a student and immediately said “Yes” when she was approached to join again.
On seeing her brave decision of serving his nation, Gilly who is very much known for his keeping skill, released a video praising the youngster, video of which is going viral in the social media platforms. “Congratulations Sharon, on your selfless act. You gave your time to work as an aged-care worker throughout the pandemic” said Gilly in his video which was released in a twitter page named as “Austrade India”
