It is not every day you end up on the cover of Vogue.
Just six weeks ago Rachel Millar was happy to be the daughter of a farmer from Co Tyrone, working in her dream job as a midwife on the outskirts of London.
But the 24-year-old has been catapulted into the limelight after being chosen as the cover girl for the NHS by the world's leading celebrity, style and fashion magazine.
And it has been quite a journey over the past six weeks of the Covid-19 outbreak for the normally shy former Cookstown High School pupil from the rural village of Coagh, who had been left despondent after having the bicycle she needed to get to work stolen.
"I wasn't expecting all this attention," Rachel told the Belfast Telegraph. "It's incredible what has happened to me over the past few weeks."
Rachel is one of three key workers chosen to adorn the UK July cover of the world renowned publication.
She revealed she knew little about what was going on the day the photographer turned up at the London hospital where she was working to take some snaps for a feature on NHS workers.
"It was about five weeks ago when there was a rumour in the hospital that Vogue was coming to take a few photos for a feature they were doing on front line workers," Rachel explained.
"I never thought they would be bothered with the likes of me. I had just popped out of a delivery suite to get an epidural top up and the photographer was there.
"I was whisked off to have a couple of photos done and that was it. I didn't think much more about it at the time.
"A few days later they called to say I was actually going to feature on the cover and I couldn't believe it, but I was sworn to secrecy.
"I couldn't even tell my family back home."
More famous around Cookstown for her hockey playing exploits with the local club before moving to England to start her career, there will be a new reason to roll out the red carpet when she returns.
"The attention has been mad," she said. "I was finally able to tell my brother Ryan last week, but had to swear him to secrecy as well."
Dad Michael and mum Sue finally found out on Sunday that their little girl was going to join the likes of pop stars Rihanna and Taylor Swift, Hollywood film star Margot Robbie and celebrity icons Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian as 2020 cover girls.
"This has all just come about by accident," she said. "I hadn't prepared at all. It was just a photo of me in the middle of helping to deliver a baby.
"After a couple of photographs were taken I went straight back into the delivery room and back to work. It was all very random, no planning at all!" For the community midwife, based at Homerton Hospital in Hackney, north London, it might be her photo on the cover, but the wider picture is about the love and support the NHS has felt during the Covid-19 crisis. "It's not really about me," she said.
"Everyone's really proud to see someone from the NHS on the cover, but this is not all about me, it's about my colleagues and the wider NHS family that have had so much recognition from the nation over the last couple of months, which has been really incredible.
"That has kept us all going. It could have been a time of really low morale, but the people have kept our spirits up and that's been great.
"Everyone's played their part. It's been really, really encouraging to see the love for the NHS come out of this."
It is the second time in a matter of weeks Rachel has felt that love.
"I was devastated when my bike was stolen six weeks ago," she said.
"Living in London it was essential to get to work and I'd been trying to avoid public transport because of my job.
"But within a few hours a colleague at hospital had raised over £500 for a new one and a local company had offered to step in and provide one.
"It's things like that, when you're at your lowest, that really lift your spirits and remind you why you're doing the job."
Despite all the attention, Rachel said a new modelling career isn't on her agenda. "I'm much too busy for that!" she said.
"I'll stick to being a midwife and playing for East London Hockey Club.
"That's what I love doing. This modelling is a one-off!
"The hockey girls at home have been in touch. They're excited about it all.
"I've been playing hockey since I was five years old so I've known most of them all my life and I've had some lovely messages which has been wonderful.
"I'm sure I'll find a spot for a framed cover somewhere on my wall at home, but I expect people won't believe it's real in a few years' time."
