As Barbie and Mattel are committed to representation and inclusion, they lift up role models who are making a positive impact during this challenging time. In this collection, they honor six frontline workers from around the world, with one-of-a-kind Barbie dolls in their likeness. From an ER nurse to a biomedical researcher and more, these heroes continue to rise up to serve their communities in this time of need and are inspiring current and future generations to follow their lead.
Included in this collection is Las Vegas doctor Dr. Audrey Sue Cruz. She treated COVID-19 patients and teamed up with other Asian-American physicians to fight racial bias and discrimination. Dr. Cruz said on her Instagram, "here’s to breaking barriers, speaking truths, and empowering the next generation."
