The 15-year-old is raising money to build a world class autism research and treatment center in Louisville.  She explains, “It’s a campaign where we’re trying to get people to commit to donating $7 a month for a year so we can raise the money to buy land that we want the center to be on and hire staff and to kick off our national campaign that will raise the money for the center.”

Michala’s youngest brother has autism and she started her project to raise money for an autism study at Kosair Children’s Hospital.  In those five years, she’s raised over a half million dollars.
