“Pauline Nguyen’s story is a remarkable tale and commences from a very early age as one of survival. She shows an extraordinary resilience as well as forgiveness….in situations where both qualities probably would have evaded a lesser person.
After escaping Vietnam with her family after the war and living for a year in a refugee camp, Pauline’s early years were tough. Her father suffered from PTSD and, as a direct result, she suffered tremendous physical and emotional abuse until she was a young woman.
Succumbing to the continuing violence, she ran away. She knew the importance of hard work and resilience and resolve….and that would eventually lead her to co-founding, owning and running Red Lantern, the world’s most awarded Vietnamese restaurant with her celebrity chef brother, Luke Nguyen. Twenty plus years later – it’s still going strong.
On top of this, Pauline is an award winning author and one of this country’s most sought after development coaches and a leading entrepreneur and international key note speaker.
An extraordinary story really.
