If you think life after prison must be a relief, think again. Juanita discovered that, even with a supportive family, rebuilding her life after incarceration was a hundred times harder than she imagined. Originally from Sydney, Juanita moved to Perth in 2023 searching for a fresh start and has since collaborated with The University of Western Australia’s Criminology lecturers, sharing her life experience with students. She is now a Peer Support Coordinator for Success Works, transforming the lives of women affected by the criminal justice system.

Presented at Justice on June 28th, 2023.
