Is there a way out of a life of gangs, violence and depression?
Astute Radio‘s Bobbie Lakhera started a conversation with Tracey Miller who grew up on an inner city estate in London and gained notoriety as a gang member, regularly carrying a knife and robbing businesses. All this and Tracey was barely into her teens.
Nicknamed ‘Sour’, her hard street persona was a world away from her reality at home. With a violent father in jail and left to manage her mother’s mental illness, Tracey was – in fact – a deeply unhappy girl desperately trying to bring herself up.
Listen as Tracey shares her quest from girl gang members to her suicide attempt, becoming a mother and turning her life around to help others in similar situations.
