Very committed to her education, Agnes completed Grade 8 despite having to walk 12 kilometers each way from home to school every day. Due to severe drought, her family could not afford to pay for her secondary school education. Though she did very well on her final examinations, she would have been forced to drop out of school. However, with an MGEF scholarship, Agnes was able to enroll at the Noonkopir Girls Secondary School and continue her education.
