Mahima was born and brought up in a Christian, financially poor family. She has two elder sisters and one younger brother. She was just two years old, when she lost her father, and in 2003 her mother also passed away leaving them alone.
Mahima became double orphaned when she was not even able to understand what it meant to lose both parents.
Mahima's uncle brought her to the hostel. She joined the hostel which runs under the Alpha Omega Society and was admitted in class 1.
She is currently studying in class 11 at Alice Springs English Medium School and her aim is to become a nurse.
