Sharing her experience, Tayeba Seher stated, ”When I agreed to do this campaign, I had no idea that it will go on for this long. After I did it, people who knew me would call and aks if that voice is mine. But still many don’t know it. I felt good that people are interested in knowing who is behind the voice.”
Social media giving different nicknames
Going viral on social media, Tayeba revealed how people have given her nicknames since they don’t know her. ”Many are calling me ‘coronavirus baji’, some are calling me ‘coronavirus wali aunty’ and more. There are also memes and parodies made on my voice circulating on the internet. Well, many are even abusing me literally.”
”If you’re being told something over and over again, maybe not everyone but a few will agree to it”, she added. Well, it was indeed an exceptional strategy to spread the important message all across Pakistan and stay safe. Speaking of the strategies, Pakistan has been making efforts since the start to curb the situation as soon as possible.
Among other developing countries of the world, Pakistan is being recognized as the frontline fighter against coronavirus. Praising the efforts, recently, YouTube’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Susan Wojcicki gave $5 million aid to Pakistan. Hopefully, the aid will be spent on combating coronavirus and helping the suffering underprivileged community.
