Errenah is 14-years-old and lives in the Chuya village in Mbelwa region of Mzimba district. She is in 6th grade at Machamira Primary School and is the oldest of seven children. As the first-born child, she wanted to be a role model to her siblings and was determined to accomplish that goal by focusing on her education. Her parents, however, had other plans for her. They had already arranged for a man to marry Errenah and had already paid him a dowery. Coaxed by her mother, Errenah decided to leave school and get married to a boy she barely knew.
