"Celebrating our diverse local talents, from actress Oon Shu An to artists, hairstylists and more."
Singapore gives us so much to be proud of, and at Her World, we celebrate that. I’m constantly bowled over by the abundance of incredible women in this country – we are never short of individuals to interview for our monthly Women Now feature.
This August, in honour of our nation’s birthday, we dive deeper on page 112 to bring you the impressive newsmakers you should know about, the exciting started-in-Singapore beauty and fashion brands you should buy, and buzzing local restaurants, bars and food you should try. Also on page 96, discover up-and-coming hairstylists in Singapore who may give you a new #hairspo.
Our home-grown thespian, Oon Shu An, is also an inspiration to women. Besides her acting career, which has spanned local television and theatre as well as Hollywood via Netﬂ ix, she’s also passionately introspective and candid about her triumphs and struggles. On page 42, Shu An tells us openly about her grief and depression and how therapy has beneﬁ ted her.
Not forgetting the women on pages 104-111 who are making real diff erences every day in their jobs, whether they’re giving women prisoners hope, educating kids in remote villages or rescuing cats. How can we not be inspired by these amazing people right on our sunny shores?
