She was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia around shero meda from her mother Rebeka Feyessa and her father Assefa Demelash, and grew up there till the age of 5.

During her childhood, Assefa loved to dance. She was very shy and very polite person that no one even imagines. She and her 5 friends of started dancing at a mini media center when she was in Elementary school hiding from her parents thinking of, if they find out about it they would make her stop from all this because her parents wanted Assefa to pay attention to her school and be successful. This was going on for approximately two years until she starts her high school. After that Assefa and her 4 friends created a dance group called UNIQUE GIRLS.
She loves to listen to music and even dreamed of becoming a singer but she realizes that she really doesn’t have the voice and thought of becoming an actor which fits her the best. Mahder also loves to read books, watch movies with friends and travel and discover new places.
The UNIQUE GIRLS have been doing so good and become good at what they do. Then they started getting big stages and got invited to be background dancers with the most famous singers in Ethiopia such as Dawit melesse, Tibebu Workiye, and many others. Once this was going on the UNIQUE GIRLS were broadcasting on live Television shows till one day her mother saw her, and of course, the girl’s parents wanted them to stop doing from what they were doing but this girls were unstoppable and kept on doing that till they finished their high school. When it’s time to go to college they all went to a different school where they couldn’t get together for practice and make the team stay, unfortunately, the UNIQUE GIRLS stopped from what they have been doing because they all agreed that they should give priority to school.
