Martha is a soft spoken girl with very few words to say. She lives with her stepmom and her 4 step siblings. Her father works as a long distance bus conductor. Martha is a brilliant girl but has problems that affect her performance time and again. Her stepmother does not give her even a second to study. The minute she gets home its housework till very late by then she is tired and cannot read this is an everyday thing. Her stepmother told her dad that he should not waste any money on her as she will not go far in her education she will be married off like other girls her age.
Martha tries to utilize every minute she has a chance to go to school. She says her desire is to work heard pass her exams very well and go away from that home if she is lucky to boarding school.
Martha has no time to even play or interact with other children because she is always doing housework.
