Winner: Ekata Dahal, Star Avaition
It’s a unique situation that no one ever wants to find themselves in and no one knows how they would react in the same situation. It is impossible to train people for this type of incident so that’s why it was amazing to read how Ekata reacted the way she did for the safety of the passengers when this active shooting happened at Canberra. In these extraordinary traumatic circumstances, she showed true leadership in escorting passengers out of the terminal at Canberra Airport. If it was not for her calmness and direction in executing the evacuation of these passengers the result would have been disastrous.
