Mary is 19 years old. She joined Maisha in 2017 when her father set her to be married off. Mary is one of 10 children, and the youngest girl. Her father clearly opposes girl-child education - he believes it is a wage of time and money. Mary's mom, who is very sick with Diabetes, worked hard to educate her through primary school but is unable to help her now because of her poor health.
Mary desires to stay in school so that she can achieve her dream of being a doctor in order to help her siblings, and many other women in the village.
