Taremi brought SOTR, a non-profit based on raising awareness and fighting against domestic violence, to her high school in 2011.
She chose to continue spreading awareness by bringing the non-profit to Penn State when she came here her freshman year.“One in four women are affected [by domestic violence] and one in seven men are. Taremi isn’t the only one to see importance in combatting domestic violence.
