Shedding light on a fight nobody wishes to know about…



SOLD. She was nine years old.

Carrie Bailee fled Canada and came to Australia when she was twenty. Once here she was assisted by a number of Australian women, and was ultimately encouraged to apply for refugee status in order to stay in this country. So began her battle to be granted asylum in Australia. Carrie stood before the Refugee Review Tribunal and revealed the dark underbelly of child sexual abuse and organised crime rings in our privileged, first-world neighbourhoods. This is the story of one young woman’s heroic journey to survive, escape and soar above her shocking childhood experiences, and her powerful struggle for freedom and a beautiful life in Australia

‘Moving, inspirational … Unforgettable! A compelling story of hope. I urge you to read this book.’Sigrid Thornton

Watch Carrie Bailee’s powerful spoken-word piece
entitled SOLD.

She courageously recounts the dark memories of her childhood, but more importantly, focuses on her inspiring escape and desire to help others in similar situations rise
up. Violence against women and children has become
an epidemic of global proportion and continues to rise.
With a beautifully poignant and inspiring style, Bailee unashamedly pulls back the curtain on a hidden and
often silenced world of abuse.


Hope is the gift inside us all that catches us

each time we fall.


And it matters not how hard we land, but that we eventually stand.
Rising to soar to infinite heights.
