She couldn't have imagined it because so much of what the rest of us take for granted was hidden from her by her parents and the other adults around her. Dassi and her six siblings were raised in the ultra-Orthodox Adass Israel community of Melbourne. you may have seen Dassi and two of her sisters on Australian Story, because their conservative sheltered upbringing was an illusion, far from being overly protected, they were actually being preyed upon in more ways than one.
