Girl Stars: Madhuri
Madhuri Kumari is an elected village leader in Fakirpuri village, Bahraich District, Uttar Pradesh. When Madhuri was young, she used to walk 6 kilometres to school, through the thick forest, and she walked barefoot because she did not have any shoes. As Madhuri grew, she knew she wanted to stay in school, so she did odd jobs for her neighbours to be able to pay for her school supplies. Madhuri was so helpful to everyone that people soon asked her to be their leader. When Madhuri stood for elections, she won and she was only 21 years old. Since then, Madhuri has been busy building roads, installing a drainage system in the village, and adding new classrooms to her local Government school. Madhuri is 27 years old.
