Stepping Up

Juanita Schaffa De Mauri

Success Works

After experiencing an unexpected turn of events that saw Juanita incarcerated, she has managed to create a new career path in Community Services. Coming from an “ideal” family dynamic and growing up in a supportive and loving environment, prison and a criminal record were not something Juanita , her family or friends ever anticipated.
Originally from Sydney, Juanita moved to Perth in January 2023 searching for a fresh start and has since collaborated with UWA’s Criminology lecturers, sharing her life experience with students, and tutoring the unit “Dealing with offenders”
Juanita hopes to one day travel to Norway and visit Halden Prison to learn more about how to introduce to Australia what is considered to be my many the most effective rehabilitation system in the world.
