Pakistani-American girl honored as a ‘coronavirus hero’ by President Trump for her rare act of compassion
This is so sweet!
The President of the United States Donald Trump and the first lady Melania Trump paid tribute to all the workers battling on the frontline against the coronavirus crisis. Among these American heroes was a 10-year old Pakistani-American girl Laila Khan.
Laila, who is a member of the Girl Scouts from Maryland, donated cookies to nurses and firefighters, along with her companions Lauren Matney and Sravya Annappareddy.
The trio donated 100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to local doctors, firefighters and nurses. They also penned down 200 personalized cards for the health workers.
While talking about the recognition, Laila said she felt honored that her troop was acknowledged.
‘’We know that we are just part of the millions of other children out there that are doing amazing things to support their communities, friends, and families. It’s a privilege to be here representing all of them’’, Laila said.
The Ambassador of Pakistan to the US, Asad Khan, also lauded Laila and thanked the US president for recognizing her efforts.
Thank you very much Mr President @realDonaldTrump. A moment of pride for the Pakistani Americans who are making important contributions in fighting Covid-19 both in the US and Pakistan. https://t.co/muldkkD5QZ
