Meet our #COVID-19 warrior from Maharashtra, Jackline Banklore, who despite being tested COVID-19 positive twice made sure she pursued her dream to become a paramedic and serve the society.

Jackline Banklore is a student of Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Healthcare, Mumbai and a part-time compounder at a hospital. While on duty, she developed COVID-19 symptoms, but she continued her job because she had to support her family.

But things got worse for the 29-year paramedic student cum compounder as she became COVID-19 positive twice and was hospitalised for 10 days. But this didn’t let her quit her dream to become a paramedic.

Once she recovered completely, she immediately joined the online classes and started preparing for the upcoming placements. “My dream is to become a successful paramedic and make sure that I support my family and fulfil their dreams as well”, says Jackline.
