About Mary

maryMary, or as she is often called in her village, Maria, was born in 1997. She is very academic, quiet, very well organized and loves to laugh. Currently she is attending one of the best secondary schools for girls in the nation with the help of Make A Difference.

Her father’s name was Ernesti and her mother’s name was Apaisaria. She has two brothers and two sisters. Her mother died in 2002 and father 2000. Maria used to sleep on a bed frame with no mattress, just clothing covering it. In her bedroom her parents brewed banana beer as an income generator and a way to escape their worries.

When Mary grows up she wants to be an orthopedic doctor!
