Ann was born on December 12, 1993, the second-born in a family of six. Her parents are both illiterate, and her father does not believe in educating girls. Still, Ann completed primary school in 2010, scoring higher on the national test than any other girl in her school. Due to her performance, Ann gained admittance to Barak Oontoyie Secondary School, an outstanding institution that accepts only the brightest students. She managed to raise enough money to pay for the first year, but knowing that her family could not afford to help her, Ann was faced with the iminent end to her education. Thankfully, an MGEF division committee member brought Ann to our attention. With a scholarship from MGEF, Ann can now continue her schooling uninterrupted.
