Brown said, “I felt it was my duty to help others. This is who I am as a person and I believed that people needed help, so I reached out to enlist as a nurse during the COVID-19 crisis as I believed that it was the right thing to do.

“I have a 10-month-old son so it was really hard leaving him and being away from him for such a period but I know when he grows up he will understand why I did this as it was the right thing to do in this situation. Hopefully, it will inspire him to do similar things when he grows up when it comes to helping others.

“I have been assisting those in need within the mining industry in Western Australia and I will have been doing this for 3 months by the time the pandemic restrictions ease off. It has been very rewarding helping others and I would do it all again in an instant if called upon.”

Brown has been awarded a humanity award for her efforts to fighting the COVID-19 virus. She joins an elite list of names who have received awards for their humanitarian-based efforts by the World Boxing Council.
