Recently, Miss England 2019 made headlines when she decided to ditch her gowns for hospital scrubs after returning to the National Health Service (NHS) of the United Kingdom when the COVID-19 pandemic started.

And closer to home, another beauty queen is also ditching her high heels for comfy shoes as she is currently working tirelessly as a frontliner to serve the nation.

Duty calls

Miss World Malaysia 2019 finalist Dr Nisha Thayananthan joins other frontliners in the battle against the Coronavirus as she is currently treating patients at the Putrajaya Hospital.

Besides fighting the pandemic, Dr Nisha also spends her free time by giving out aids to the needy in her hometown in Seremban.

“I was taught to give more than to receive, especially to the less fortunate,” the Miss World Malaysia “Beauty with a Purpose Award” winner told Bernama.

“Along this journey, I've come across people who are suffering, especially during the ongoing movement control order (MCO) to contain COVID-19.”

“Most of the times I fork out my own pocket money to help these people and often use my days off by engaging in charity, ” said Dr Nisha, whose mother runs an elderly care home as well as a shelter for abandoned animals, both in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

In these few days, I was able to secure an amount of funding and groceries to be given out to the underprivileged . I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your generous support especially @rakyatmalaysia.official ❤ Special Thanks to @mas_mas2ra who helped me loading goods that weigh nearly 200kg, baking under a hot sun ☺? Always help someone, you might be the only one that does
