Take risks.

In 2013, Michelle left everything behind to travel to Nepal. A fundraising trip became much more as she discovered deep love and respect for the Nepali people. Her experience inspired her to share her story and those of the lives she met along the way. Looking for ways to help her new friends, Khata Life was born.
