Valli is 23 years old, and has completed class 8. She used to volunteer for a non-profit to run after-school learning classes for children in her village. Valli's grandmother who lives nearby has only one worry - that Valli is unmarried and already considered too old for marriage. Her grandmother explains that one of the reasons she faces rejection for marriage "is because she is better qualified than the prospective grooms".
