UOW Brand Ambassador and cricketing legend Adam Gilchrist has posted a shout-out to UOW nursing graduate Sharon Varghese in an Austrade ‘Student Hero’ initiative designed to recognise the contribution of Indian students to the Australian community.

The short clip posted to social media by Austrade initiative Internash and tweeted by Austrade India, has been viewed nearly 25,000 times and has recently been picked up by a number of Indian news outlets, including The Times of India, The Indian Express, and IndiaTV.

Ms Varghese graduated from UOW with a Bachelor of Nursing in December 2019, and has been working locally at Greenhill Manor Residential Aged Care in Figtree, caring for some of the most vulnerable members of our community during the pandemic. She plans to return to study to pursue a Master of Nursing.
