A woman of substance
WHEN Trigg plastic surgeon Dr Anh Nguyen met Oprah Winfrey in Perth three years ago, the talk show host and philanthropist told her to “speak the truth”.
This resonated with Dr Anh, who was bullied during her training and early career.
“You need guts and courage to stand up to those who aren’t doing the right thing, and the bullies I encountered through training and in my early professional days,” Dr Anh said.
It is this guts and courage that appealed to philanthropist Ros Worthington as she was choosing 35 ‘Women of Substance’ for a Breast Cancer Care WA fundraiser.
On September 21, the philanthropist is bringing 35 accomplished women together at Fraser’s, who will each sit with a table of guests to inspire them through conversation. Tickets are available at www.rosworthington.com.au.
