Eunice is an 11 year old girl who comes from a polygamist family of 15 children. Eunice’s dad is an alcoholic and does not provide for the family. Eunice’s father decided to marry off one of his daughters. He was to choose between Eunice and her older sister, but Eunice ran away. Her older sister was responsible for the younger siblings at the time, so she urged Eunice to leave while she stayed behind. The father was furious and told her mother that if Eunice’s older sister ran away, there would be consequences. Eunice hopes her sister will have the opportunity to also run away, though she fears for her mother.
Eunice’s uncle brought her to the MGEF local board member. Eunice was accepted to MGEF and is now attending a boarding school.
