Her experience sparked the LetHerSpeak campaign. Ms Tame recalled the moment she first spoke about her abuse to a male teacher who believed her. She said it was important to believe survivors and help them wherever possible because as a group you are stronger.
But one of the first people I told was also a male teacher. He believed me,' she said. I remember you saying, 'don't make a sound'.
Well hear me now, using my voice, in a growing chorus that will not be silenced. I'm a survivor. Ms Tame wants a greater focus on educating children on how to identify grooming and psychological manipulation by abusers.
Ms Tame decided to get a tattoo when she was 19 to represent her survival. The tattoo reads: 'Eat my fear'. She explained that the message is about speaking up against abusers and learning the lessons from survivors. That's the foundation of their psychological manipulation, which is a huge element of prolonged sexual abuse. And predators want us to feel that fear. Ms Tame was just 15 when she was suffering from anorexia and became the sexual target of her maths teacher, more than 40 years her senior.
Telling him about when an older child had forced her into a cupboard and told her to undress before she was molested, the predator then saw an opportunity to pounce. From there, Bester then groomed the young Ms Tame and exposed her to films which glorified relationships between young women and older men.
Ms Tame launched a successful Supreme Court bid to publicly self-identify as a rape survivor. He would also isolate her from her family and friends saying she would overcome anorexia alone. You can beat your illness on your own.
You are so intelligent''. But if ever I got too much confidence or I was building enough strength to potentially see the abuse for what it was, he would take me down, he would just tear shreds off me. He said, ''you could do with some more exercise. A brave Ms Tame then reported the rapes to the school and to the police which eventually saw Bester locked up for two-and-a-half years' jail.
When he was released from prison in , he described the ordeal as 'awesome' and booked multiple interviews where he made himself appear as the victim. She shared her horrific story which then saw the launch of the Let Her Speak campaign.
Eventually, on August 12, , Ms Tame went public with her story of survival to raise awareness. Under laws passed in February last year, Victorian rape and sexual assault victims cannot choose to identify themselves publicly - such as in media reports or even autobiographies - unless they get permission from a court.
She launched a successful Supreme Court bid to publicly self-identify as a rape survivor and the public awareness campaign has continued. In , she became the Northern Territory's first fully qualified Aboriginal teacher, becoming a principal in her community of Nauiyu, kilometres south-west of Darwin.
The year-old she advocated for the inclusion of visual art as part of every child's education. Dr Ungunmerr-Baumann is also a renowned writer, public speaker, activist and artist.
When announced as Senior Australian of the Year on Monday, she said she 'couldn't breathe' from her excitement. If you could collaborate with another artist who would it be? So he contacted us through his management. He wanted to jump on the song, so he did an English version at the beginning, and he sang the hook with me in Spanish, which is a cool thing for him to take the time to do this.
Work hard, be kind and humble. LF : I go to the gym daily when the schedule allows it. Life is too short. I wear clothes that allow me to move freely and jump around the stage when I have to. A good T-shirt, denim pants, and sneakers or boots. I also love hanging with my band and dancers too; we have a tight bond so a few hours before the show we get together to get the energy up, it helps us give the best show to the fans.
