Santoshi was born and brought up in a Hindu family. Her father works in a cloth shop and mother is a cook at a home. Santoshi's father abandoned her family due to frequent disputes between her parents.
Santoshi has undergone much emotional pain due to the abandonment by her father and because her mother was not able to meet her basic needs.
As a result she was forced to live with her grandmother. Since her grandmother's financial condition was also not good, again, she was asked to move to her uncle's house.
Her family was facing a tough time regarding Santoshi's upbringing. One of her uncles brought her to the hostel. She later joined the hostel in 2012 which runs under the Alpha Omega Society and was admitted in class 8.
After coming to the hostel she heard about Jesus Christ and the word of God that now constantly strengthens her heart and mind.
Santoshi is now studying in class 11 at Alice Springs English Medium School. Santoshi's aim is to become a nurse.
