After a tumultuous year, Grace Tame has announced she is engaged to her “angel man”.

The 2021 Australian of the Year shared the news on social media over the weekend, along with photos of the moment her now-fiance Max Heerey dropped to one knee and proposed during a bike ride at Bellerive Bluff, Hobart that morning.

“I said, ‘OATH, YES!!!’,” Tame captioned the sweet images.

In a follow-up tweet, the 27-year-old said, “We’ll wear helmets at the wedding too don’t worry”.

On Instagram, she captioned the same photos: “I said, ‘yeeeeES!!!’

“Huge thank-you to @jordangrech / @tenderscars for designing the most exquisite sapphire ring.

“And to my cousin Eloise (Weasy bun), for capturing the surprise from the bushes on our ride this morning haha. We’re over the moon.”

The newly-engaged Tasmanian also shared an adorable selfie of her and Heerey, as well as a close-up of her new ring.

Tame received the Australian of the Year award last year for her work as an advocate for sexual assault survivors and contribution to the #LetHerSpeak campaign.

Launched by journalist Nina Funnell, Marque Lawyers, the founder of End Rape on Campus Australia Sharna Bremmer, and 16 other sexual assault survivors, the campaign aimed to overturn the Tasmanian law that prevented survivors from being identified and speak about their experiences publicly.

By the end of 2021, Tame also topped the list of the most influential Australians on Twitter, despite only starting her account at the start of the year.

“She’s an absolute powerhouse on Twitter and she only tweeted for the first time in April of this year, so just a huge amount of support and conversation around Grace,” Angus Keene, the acting managing director at Twitter Australia, told the Today Show in December.

Tame also made TIME’s list of Next Generation Leaders last year, and started her own foundation to combat sexual abuse and support victims.

Appearing in Vogue’s list of 21 Australian Women Who Defined 2021, Tame said she hoped to see “a culture of accountability”, and a widespread condemnation of domestic violence, child sexual abuse and sexual assault by the country’s political parties.

Several days before her engagement, Tame reflected on her year as the Australia of the Year and thanked her followers and others for their support.

“Although I didn’t choose the award, I’ll be forever grateful for the honour,” she wrote on Twitter.

“Change was made before, is happening now, and will continue – growing in volume, every day 💗.”
