After surviving the 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas, Michella returned to her home in California, expecting to find peace and solace. But days later, her world was shaken again when her home was one of hundreds that burned down in the widespread Northern California wildfires. Michella and her family emerged from the fire with nothing more than their dogs and the clothes on their backs.

After the fire, Michella and her family picked through the ashes of their home, trying to salvage any items and memories that they could. Instead of letting the trauma of two horrible events paralyze them, Michella’s family followed the same mantra they always have: keep moving forward.

As Michella’s mother sifted through the rubble, she said, “Every little piece will help us build a new beginning.”

Watch the video above to see how Michella and her family’s unfaltering strength has carried them through unimaginable circumstances.
