Former 'Miss Inked Australia' Is Trying To Change Stereotypes In The Medical Field
The former Miss Inked Australia is training to become a surgeon and is smashing stereotypes along the way.
Although we have seen a lot of progression in accepting differences in looks and bodies in 2019, we’re shocked that the 2017 winner of Miss Inked Australia experiences judgement over her body modifications.
Sarah Gray works as an intern at a hospital in Adelaide, and is currently training to become an orthopaedic surgeon, but she faces prejudices because of her tattoos. Gray got her first tattoo when she was 15 and is now speaking out about the issues she’s faced because of people judging the look she loves.
The future surgeon is absolutely smashing the stereotypes and taboos people have about tattoos and we love her for it!
"If you're confident and competent at your job it shouldn't really matter what you look like. I'm just trying to advocate for being your own person and still being able to work in the medical profession."
We love this message and totally agree. If you’re good at your job, who gives a hoot what you look like?! Go get ‘em girl.
