Salma is the oldest of two. She comes from a humble background, both her parents are casual workers and do not have a stable income. Salma and her younger sister were often sent home for lack of fees. She was elated when MCF gave her the chance to continue with her education at no cost. She enjoys dancing and aspires to become a doctor.
