Hi, I’m Jas Rawlinson!

You may know me for my work as a best-selling Australian author, mental health and resilience speaker, and memoir/ author coach who shines a light on taboo topics, and empowers trauma survivors to turn their past pain into powerful life stories. 

However, I wasn’t always a strong and outspoken person. In fact, as a child growing up with family violence, fear and depression were all I knew for a very long time.

But there was one thing I knew for sure.

One day I would find a way to help others so they didn’t have to suffer in silence.

After moving to QLD in 2012 to pursue my creative passions further, I soon discovered my heart for issues like human trafficking, domestic violence and child abuse.

I realised I wasn’t interested in ‘fluff’ pieces about diets and fashion. I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. And so, slowly and consistently, I took every opportunity that came my way.

And through the process, I found my voice…

Since then, I’ve worked as a magazine editor, freelance journalist, online content wordsmith and ghostwriter, and have been featured across outlets such as ABC News, news.com.au, 9 News, House of Wellness, and Non Fiction Authors Association.

I’m proud to be an anti-human trafficking ambassador for Destiny Rescue, and am passionate about raising my voice against the exploitation of children.

I’ve spent time in Thailand with sex trafficking survivors & undercover rescue agents…

And in 2016 received national media coverage for co-founding Brisbane’s first permanent Domestic Violence Memorial (which was opened by Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk). 

According to one of my followers, the memorial even made the front page of a paper in Italy!

Today I’m a strong advocate for hope and healing.

And am also the author of the suicide prevention series ‘Reasons To Live One More Day, Every Day.’ 

My life work is about giving a voice to anyone who has ever felt voiceless. And truly, what better gift could I give to the world than this? Thanks for being a part of my journey!
