Yasodha Khatiwada was born in Bhutan. She and her family were exiled when she was 33 years old in 1992 and lived in Timai refugee camp (Nepal) for 18 years.
Yasodha, her husband and children all resettled in Minnesota in 2008. Her biggest expectations before arriving in Minnesota were to be able to provide for her children.
Yasodha, her husband, and children are all working and they just bought a home. She is excited to become a citizen while having the freedom to continue to practice her religion, Hinduism.
