In these trying times, we have come to realise that the true heroes are the selfless and brave healthcare professionals and the others like the police officers who are working day in and day out to make sure we are safe at home. To show her respect and admiration for their efforts, Priyanka Chopra Jonas decided to do something super sweet and thoughtful.

The actress took to her Instagram to shine light on the women warriors who are doing amazing work in the times of COVID-19. She asked her followers to nominate four women who are going above and beyond to help those in need and felicitated them with a reward of $100,000. From Emily, a nurse working in the ER and saving lives every day to Jaya, who donated her time and money to make sure people in the frontlines got their N95 masks, these women sure have been inspirations.

Thank you everyone for nominating such incredible women who are rising above the challenges of today to help others. This week, @bonvivspikedseltzer and I are shining light on 4 women who are truly going above and beyond to make a difference on the front lines. Everyone, please meet… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Emily, an APRN working in the ER everyday, helping those in need, while also choosing to live apart from her family to keep them safe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jo, who works at a long-term care facility caring for patients and offering them companionship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jaya, who has generously donated her time and money to help get N95 masks to those on the frontlines. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jenny, thank you for starting your #FeedingHeroes initiative to provide meals to healthcare workers on the front lines. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We applaud you and commemorate you. Much love. ❤️ ️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TogetherWomenRise
