#19 Abha Dhital - Graphic Designer and Journalist
Abha is the co-founder and creator behind a quirky card shop called Little Things based in Kathmandu, Nepal. She comes from a background in journalism and writes regular articles for the Kathmandu Post alongside running the store and designing cards. She took a huge leap of faith when opening up the store which almost backfired when they thought it might be too big. Looking to fill the extra space they collaborated with local artists to help sell their products and merchandise as well which in turn has made the space a creative hub for members of the local community.
Last year she was one of seven women to be honoured with the Yellow Rose Day award by Zonta Club and Google for the inspiring work she has been doing in Kathmandu which is quite the achievement!
Alongside the store, Little Things did their first speed dating event recently which was a huge success so we chatted quite a bit about the dating scene in Nepal and also how marriage works out there as well.
It was super fun meeting and chatting to Abha. We recorded the podcast in the little things shop which is next to a pretty busy road so apologies if you hear a few horns and cars in the background - hopefully they’re not too distracting!
