About the FIlm

Eighteen-year-old Maheshwari comes from a family of quarry workers in rural India, none of whom completed schooling past the eighth grade. For the first four years of Maheshwari's life, it seemed she would follow a similar path: Waking at 5 a.m. to start the household chores, marrying young, bearing children, and bringing in money through odd jobs wherever she could. Instead, she was selected by the Shanti Bhavan Children's Project to attend their boarding school, a brush with fate that would change the trajectory of her entire life.


About the Event

Join us for a screening of this inspiring short documentary, followed by a Q&A session with filmmakers Christen Brandt and Kate Lord, as well as Ajit George, the US Director of Operations for Shanti Bhavan's Children's School. Conversation and complimentary food and drink to follow.

**All ticket proceeds and donations are to benefit Maheshwari's college scholarship fund.**

She's the First

She's the First promotes the importance of educating girls, especially in the developing world. We sponsor girls around the globe by encouraging young people to unlock the power of their social networks and creatively fundraise, giving underprivileged girls the means to break barriers and become the "first" to achieve their special goals.
