Tiffani Brooke Fest    

Award-Winning Actress, Activist, Survivor & TEDx Speaker

Tiffani Fest is an award winning actress, activist, and TEDx speaker. Marrying her on-stage skills as an actress, with her field experience as a global activist in India and Nepal, she advocates on behalf of women and children who have suffered sexual violence around the world. She began her global philanthropy efforts in 2015, as a solo female traveler, and never imagined her passion for championing oppressed women and children would forge a path for her public speaking & survivor advocacy work to emerge.

In her new TEDx talk titled "Turning Your Greatest Suffering into Your Greatest Gift," she reveals her most personal transformation story - how she turned her own greatest suffering as a sexual abuse survivor into her greatest mission to advocate on behalf of women survivors globally. She is currently an Ambassador for New Light India, the largest non profit operating in the red light districts of Kolkata, whose mission is to educate and empower women & girls there, thus ending the cycle of 2nd generation prostitution. She is also the host and emcee of a Women's Leadership Conference in Rajasthan India, uniting powerful women thinkers from the East and West, and a passionate speaker from International Women's Day 2021.

Fest's mission as a speaker is to inspire women (and men!) to turn the source of their greatest suffering into the source of their greatest gift to give back in the world. Named Top 20 Women Making a Global Impact in 2020 by Formidable Magazine, and Top 10 Transformational Leaders in 2021 by Exeleon Magazine.
