Sapna resides and works in Agra. She comes from a large family comprising of 11 members. In order to support her family, she discontinued her education. In spite of being a straight set “A” grade student, she was asked to quit school due to financial burdens.

The sole breadwinner of her family for a long time, she was responsible for the overall well being of everyone at home. Due to unknown reasons, one of her brothers fell sick. He suffered a paralytic stroke and had been bedridden for few months. Her mother was also unwell and eventually passed away after a massive heart attack. It was sad that her mother expired immediately after her engagement.

The series of sad events mainly triggered by her mother’s death, lead the groom’s family to believe that Sapna is a bad omen. Due to these incidents, Sapna’s engagement was called off by the groom’s family.

All these bitter experiences only strengthened her zeal to make it big in life. She attended the HER FINANCE session. The session helped in regaining her lost confidence. She is now a peer educator and is considered a strong role model.
