According to the usual script, Stacey should be living on the streets, in jail, on drugs or dead. She ticks all the boxes when it comes to risk factors; having experienced no mum throughout her life, bought up in housing commission, suffered child sexual abuse, at age 13 living in a shed, 15 and pregnant, 19 with two babies and homeless, 21 with three children and living in a domestic violent relationship.
Fast forward 10 years...
Remarkably Stacey managed to defy the odds in a spectacular way by rising above adversity when everyone had counted her out. She has gone on to become a successful business owner and acclaimed international speaker.
Stacey is now 34 years old and has five wonderful children, and a beautiful and supportive partner. She is an author, international speaker, and runs a
successful business, 'Brand Print Australia'. The most exciting part of Stacey's life right now is being the official ambassador for both the Lighthouse
Foundation and Brave Hearts Inc., which saw her nominated for the 2012 Pride of Australia Award.
