Season 2, Episode 36: Stand Up & Speak Up with Debby Montgomery Johnson and Cece Espeut. Raised in a “good” family overseas and surrounded with all of the best things, Cece, the ultimate city girl, arrived in NYC from London and who do you think she “met” at the Metro station?

The US Marine Corps recruiter and the rest is history…”I’ll see you when I see you” is what she told her mom and 10 years later she’s telling another story from behind Federal Prison walls. How did her brilliant “math mind” get her caught up in drug conspiracy with her “friends?” As she tells, her good life went one way and she went the other UNTIL she told her story and realized she wasn’t alone…she wasn’t the only “good girl” who’s been behind bars. Armed with the intense WILL to not go back, EVER, she turned her passion in photography into a thriving business. Called out by Sharon Lechter at a Women’s Prosperity Network Unconference, Cece could not hide behind the camera or the mask of embarrassment any longer. It was time to STAND UP & SPEAK UP about her life and turn her pain and experiences into something for good. Today Cece Espeut is a TedX speaker, author, and advocate for second chances and restoring your life after incarceration. What a woman…what a story!
