Tierney Khan


Tierney Khan has always been passionate about using words to express her opinions and to stand up for what she believes in. In 2020 she became the VCAA Plain English Speaking Award Victorian State Champion with a speech titled Not another speech about feminism’, and has since utilised those skills in the multiple events she has been a part of through The Wheeler Centre.

 In addition, an article she wrote on her experience of being of mixed race in Australia was published by Rosie, a blog run by the Victorian Women’s Trust. Coming from a multi-ethnic background, Tierney has personally experienced many of the issues faced by young female Australians of colour, and she channels those experiences to help drive her actions.
