Top fashion magazine British Vogue has set out to dedicate its July 2020 issue to pay tribute to millions of UK workers for their “bravery and dedication in helping others.”

Editor-in-chief Edward Enninful decided to put three essential workers on its cover: a London Overground train driver, an east London midwife, and a King’s Cross supermarket assistant. He said that at this time, the society had shifted its attention to the workers, “who are not usually afforded the spotlight.”

Narguis Horsford of Bounds Green, North London has worked the local government transport system Transport for London (TFL) in Greater London, Englan, for ten years. She has been driving London Overground trains for five years, going through the route based at a Willesden Junction depot from Stratford to Richmond Junction and Gospel Oak to Barking. 

She wakes up early and starts her shift asa driver at 1:30 in the morning. Because of the pandemic, she lives alone in isolation from her grandmother. Her family is worried about her but she claims to feel no anxiety at all. 

“This has certainly shown us that life is short. And we can’t take anything for granted,” Narguis shared.
