Marta grew up in her beloved Ethiopia. Her childhood memories include riding a mule and having parents who wanted for her the best - an education. At fifteen she was married, and graduated at the top of her class at eight months pregnant. As a young lady she made a lasting impression on the King and his wife. Her obedience and never-give-up spirit led her to be the first female to hold a position in the Senate.
