Mariani is 17 years old and from Karangasem, East Bali. Her parents got divorced and started new families when she was still a child, which is why she used to live only with her grandmother and sister. In school, Mariani was an active student and once won a running competition. After coming home from school, she used to help her grandmother selling food. This situation has changed last year, because her grandmother had to move to her aunt in Denpasar due to the volcanic activities of Mount Agung. Now, Mariani lives with her father and step mother, who make a living by selling traditional food in the market. Mariani’s motivation to join Bali WISE is driven by the wish to improve her family’s financial condition and to provide for the education of her step brother and step sister.
