Advisor to put an end to domestic and family violence
2017 Young Australian of the Year Finalist Tarang Chawla's inspirational story is a heartwarming tale of overcoming adversity and rising above personal mental health struggles by advocating for a better world following the horrific murder of his 23-year old sister Nikita.
With courage, leadership and resilience, Tarang adds a human element to statistics after having the devastating burden of identifying Nikita's remains as the first victim of domestic violence in 2015. Determined not to let her death be in vain, Tarang founded "Not One More Niki", Australia's campaign to end violence against women.
Tarang advises state and national governments, businesses and organisations on their efforts to end domestic and family violence and informs multiple Ministerial committees. Tarang is an Ambassador for Victoria Against Violence, White Ribbon, Our Watch, InTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence and Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre, working with young men to support them to adopt new models of masculinity that don't lead to violence.
Believing that you can achieve anything you dream possible, Tarang is an engaging author and compelling keynote speaker who brings his multicultural heritage and humour to a heartbreaking topic, empowering communities to action and reminding us of the importance of making the most of every day.
