When does the fasting become obligatory for a girl ?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I started menstruation from an early age of 11 years. Was fasting mandatory for me from such an early age? Actually now I am fulfilling Qaza fasting and hence confused from what age I shall calculate all the missed fasting. Please guide me.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 350/358/L=03/1436)

You turned adult after you experienced menstruation and fasting was obligatory on you from then. You shall make qaza of your fasts from that time.
