A woman of sub­stance

Stirling Times - - Front Page -

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.
