Meet Stacey. Growing up without her mother, Stacey was brought up in a housing commission, was a victim of child sexual abuse and ended up living in a shed at age 13. At 15 years old, she was pregnant and by 19 she was a mother of two - and homeless. By the time she was 21, Stacey had had three children but was in a toxic relationship, a victim of domestic violence. Now 36 years old, Stacey has five children and is supported by her loving partner. She is an author, an international speaker and CEO of Brand Print Australia. More recently, she has become the official Ambassador for the Lighthouse Foundation and Brave Hearts Inc., which led to her being nominated for the 2012 Pride of Australia Award. She is a Strong Woman.
