Judith is very determined to continue with her studies against all odds and many times she has do manual jobs like fetching water for people and burning charcoal during weekends and holidays in order to supplement her motherís income to pay school fees and buy food. The family does not own any land because culturally, women are not allocated any portion of their father's land.

Judith is an exceptionally brilliant student and given the opportunity to study and get a good education she has the potential to excel in life and become a productive person in her family and community.
