Don’t judge a book by it’s cover

Looking at this picture, you may think this woman is just one of these models only good at covering people magazine.

Indeed Sarah Jane Gray was an Australian model who even won some beauty pageants for her body arts.

But first of all, Sarah is an orthopaedic surgeon. You can call her Dr Gray.

Despite her demanding job, Sarah manages to fit her body style to her professional life. Almost all her parts are tattooed and she has also piercings and dyed hair.

In addition to her personal involvement to change states of mind of people around her, Sarah decided to fight against some stereotypes in the somehow conservative world of medicine. She acts as an influencer to change thoughts about appearance in her job. She would like to be an inspiration for people with particular appearance like her.

Some patients and people may blame Sarah’s appearance but her colleagues mostly focus on her professional skills and how she can help to save people. And she does it well as she published some research in Metastatic Spinal Cord Compression which led her to a presentation at the Global Spinal Conference in Milan four years ago.

Even though that seems to be a tough fight, Sarah is a case among thousands of others that points out that we need to see much beyond physical appearance.

  1. As long as she is talented as a surgeon who cares what she looks like. She certainly wouldn’t be the type to be constrained by traditional treatments and would try new techniques for the improved wellbeing of the patient.

  2. My wife aspires to be covered in tatts like this woman, full sleeve, 2 portraits on her leg, large tatts each side of her ribs/chest, belly, feet and ankles so far. Workaholic and one of the toughest women ive ever known, i learnt long ago not to judge a book by its cover
