'I learnt a lot in juvie' : the Aboriginal boy who grew up in detention
The Guardian | 2017

When Jared (name has been changed) turned 20 in November, it was only his second birthday since the age of 11 that he spent out of detention, hundreds of kilometres from his home. Here he tells Guardian Australia reporter Melissa Davey his story and speaks of his dreams of seeing more of Australia. ‘I’d rather do things with my life,’ he says, adding: ‘I really am proud of myself for keeping out of trouble this long – two years I’ve been keeping out and I’m proud of that.’
