 Niika Daria


Whilst completing a Bachelor of Science, Niika pursued her passion of Film and TV

and proudly produced her own shows at Gasworks Theatre, Lay Me Down to Sleep

and went on to do main roles in shows like Neighbours and Eugenie Sandler on the ABC

followed by 2 fabulous years as a host for NOVA Radio in Perth. 

You might recognise Niika as the face of a few large campaigns, National Youth Suicide

which was shown across Channels 10, 9 and 7. 

This success was followed with an invitation to be the face of Westfield Shopping Centre

and MC all around Australia, including presenting the Loreal Fashion Awards.

Niika was also the last female standing on the iconic show Fear Factor on channel 7

Her experience in the TV industry has resulted in a range of amazing opportunities off camera

as well as on camera. After the passing of her 35-year-old Brother from a Heart Defect

Niika became more involved in philanthropy. Living in India for two years working

with homeless children, Niika created her own charity organisation: “The Mateship Program”

which was successfully introduced into schools around Australia.

During her time spent living in India Niika became a Yoga and Meditation teacher

as well as a NLP therapist. Niika has ambitious plans for her future, and now in 2021

is working tirelessly to produce her first feature documentary, which shines a light on people

suffering from Neurodiversity and showcases how these people find a place in society

that is full of hope and meaning.  “It’s an absolute honour to now be part of

The Shaun Miller Foundation, I hope to also carry my brothers legacy into the work we do here

and to make both my brother and Shaun proud of how we help other families

experiencing the tradgedy of congenital heart illnesses” Niika remarks in regards to collaborating with the Foundation, an Australian foundation that focuses on ‘mending broken hearts’

offering support, education and care for patients and families faced with cardiac problems.
