Heath Ducker – Overcoming and Inspiring

Heath Ducker – Overcoming and Inspiring

What – rather, whom – do you get when you break the cycles and shackles of poverty, deprivation, and abuse? A remarkable young man by the name of Heath Ducker. 
Second of 10 children with several fathers, Ducker was raised in poverty by his emotionally unstable single mother. He was, at the age of 12, sexually abused by the father of a friend. Fortunately for Ducker, he found the Youth Insearch organization. Through Youth Insearch, Ducker met other young people who had overcome deprivation and whose stories inspired Ducker to overcome the troubles in his life.
Ducker realized that education was the way out of poverty. He could not study in the noise and chaos of his crowded house, so he went to the roof to study. His academic efforts have paid off. Ducker is a solicitor with a leading Sydney law firm.
Ducker became the youngest person ever appointed as a Youth Insearch leader. This role has allowed him to be a role model for troubled youth. This overcomer and role model has even been invited to advise the Australian Prime Minister concerning youth affairs.
