Milly is 23 years old. After many years of her mother struggling to pay school fees and provide for her children's basic needs, Milly completed her basic education in 2016. Milly was excited to join University upon completing Senior Six, but her dream was shut down because her mother could not afford to raise the tuition. Milly's father does not help to provide for her, as he left his family for another woman on Christmas Day in 2006. Since Milly had no way of furthering her education, she looked for work and found a job at a fuel station. She worked there until she lost her employment due to Covid-19 shutdowns. Sadly, Milly's mother passed away in August, leaving Milly and her brother to fend for themselves. They often did petty work to earn a living.
Milly has not experienced joy while growing up like other children do because her life has been characterized by tears, sorrow, and regrets. She now feels some relief at being welcomed to Kipindi and is very excited about what she has yet to experience.
