Our medical frontliners are, without a doubt, the biggest heroes during this COVID-19 pandemic.

They've sacrificed their time and effort, and even put their lives on the line, just to make sure that we're safe.

Grateful Malaysians from all walks of life are doing all they can to show appreciation to these frontliners.

Dedicated to our frontliners

The girl with the winning touch.
A 17-year-old Malaysian paid tribute to the frontliners in the best way possible: by winning first place in a a poster-making contest recently.

According to a report by The Star Online, Wan Jamila Wan Shaiful Bahri, an artist with autism, painted an acrylic on canvas piece titled “Our Heroes Series 1” in line with the competition theme 'A Salute To All Frontliners Around The World'.

The gorgeous art piece consisted of our frontliners working hard to keep the COVID-19 pandemic at bay.

The poster-making competition was organised by Artdialogo Asia in collaboration with Kazakhstan-based The Children Are Painting The World Social Fund.

She walked away with the prize under Category B, which is open to participants ages 13 to 19.

The other four other winners in this category were from South Korea, Kazakhstan, Lebanon and the Philippines.

Gorgeous piece, don't you think?
"I am very proud and happy that she won the competition. This achievement will certainly be a boost for her to continue making art, ” her mother, 58-year-old Noorhashimah Mohamed Noordin, told the news portal.

In fact, Noorhashimah revealed that this was the first competition Wan Jamila joined this year.

Not a bad achievement for a selt-taught painter, right?
