Become a new and better version of yourself
CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains words or language that may be considered offensive by some.
In this episode of the Raise 1000 Voices podcast, we have a no holds barred conversation on why you must become a new and better version of yourself with Stacey Currie.
Stacey’s story truly is one of defying the odds. Taken away from her mother as a baby, having experienced childhood sexual assault, getting pregnant as a teenager, falling into in an abusive relationship, and growing up in a dysfunctional set-up, it was more or less expected by society and authorities that she would ‘never amount to anything’
And yet Stacey managed to claw her way out of every single one of her experiences, fighting for survival driven by a deep determination she wanted her children to have a better life – even though, as you will hear, she had no idea what a ‘better life’ was or meant.
She is fiercely passionate about the responsibility we must take as parents; understanding who we are and the decisions we make will always have an impact on the next generation – our children. And you will discover just why she is so passionate about it, the choices she had to make, and how it saved the lives of her eldest sons.
Now a successful businesswoman, Stacey is committed to being an inspiration to others who are going through dramatic and traumatic life experiences. Her story is proof that you can pursue the impossible, you can feel empowered and you can become a new and better version of yourself.
