Nika Shakarami

Nika was a bold 16-year-old girl who was full of hope, desire, and a zest for life. She was an artist who was fond of painting and singing. She had a very clear and beautiful voice. In Nika's public videos, she lip-syncs Taylor Swift's song, "Look What You Made Me Do." Putting aside her dreams of becoming a star, she instead took the path of fighting for freedom and equality.

On September 21, 2022, Nika was killed by the Regime security forces on Keshavarz Blvd. in Tehran. She was reportedly beaten to death with batons. On September 31, 2022, ten days after her murder and her family not hearing any news of her whereabouts, her body was handed over to her family. Nika was buried on October 1, 2022, coinciding with her 17th birthday.
