A determined campaigner to end violence against women, a shaper of global human rights and an emerging voice in youth mental health, Tasman Bain has packed a lot into his short life. As the co-founder of Meri Toksave, a youth-led women’s rights initiative in Papua New Guinea, Tasman is striving to end gender-based violence. Tasman has advocated for international child rights as a Plan Australia Youth Ambassador and a UNICEF Australia Young Ambassador. He has run marathons, volunteered in a remote Aboriginal community, had a composition performed at the Queensland Conservatorium and hiked the Kokoda Track. Beyond their quantity and quality, Tasman’s achievements are all the more extraordinary given his own personal struggle with mental illness and eating disorders. Tasman is a role model for others, demonstrating that mental illness is not a boundary to being a positive, proactive member of the community.
