Australian Story - The Graduate (Kerry Tucker)

When Kerry Tucker was jailed for seven years for theft and fraud, she had two choices. She could give in to the shame and hopelessness or apply her energy and brains to building a future. Kerry Tucker decided to turn incarceration into an opportunity. Missing her own two children, she wrote a children's book to help ease the trauma of prison visits. She helped prison administrators by helping other inmates, she acquired an education and gained her Masters of Arts in the first graduation ceremony behind bars in Australia. Now, out of jail, she is a successful academic with a PhD and a job at a leading university.
