Stacy - an aspiring young engineer

Life and Dreams

Short Story #6

Stacy was born into a very poor family. At a young age, her father died in a tragic accident. Now widowed and with no one to turn to for help, Stacy’s mother became a prostitute in a bid to survive. Stacy and her sister, still small children, would have also been forced into prostitution had they not had a refuge to go to.

This year, Stacy graduated college with a degree in engineering after living 14 years in one of APCF’s children’s homes. She dreams of being a business owner like her sister who grew up with her in the children’s home.
