This narrative maps the role of agency in the form of resilience in the life of a young Palestinian girl who was forced into marriage at the age of 16. It chronicles this author's personal and social maturation relative to how she endured the indifference of her own family to her own personal aspirations and to her abusive marriage. Subsequently, she departed with her children and finally achieved the desideratum to live a self-directed life.
