NJ Teen Commemorates Health Care Workers Lost to COVID
As Xinyi Christine Zhang watched the COVID-19 death toll among health care workers rise this spring, she wanted to find a way to give solace—and thanks—to their families.
The 15-year-old teen, of South Brunswick Township, was driven to do something personal.
A gifted artist, Zhang resolved to draw the fallen U.S. health care workers in colorful memorial portraits, distribute them to their families and post them on her website. She wanted the relatives to know that people appreciated those who were trying to help Americans heal while putting their own lives in jeopardy.
