The Union Health Ministry has appointed Aruna Kesavan, who topped the CBSE Class 12 examinations this year, as the brand ambassador for its 'Women Empowerment' and 'Save The Girl Child' campaigns.
A science stream student, she had secured 97.4% marks scoring a perfect 100 in Mathematics.
As brand ambassador, she will endorse advertisements, posters and other multimedia messages, themes, concepts and concerns related to the campaigns, an official release said in Delhi on Friday.
She would work towards strengthening the social status of women in society and create awareness about marriage, dowry and immunisation of the girl child.
The student from Kerala would be given a token amount of Rs 500,000 at the end of her one-year tenure.
That's a token amount? Why didn't anybody pay us for board exam marks? :-)
