Dipa Bhattarai was an entrepreneur just trying to pursue the American dream. Then the state shut her down.

Bhattarai grew up in Nepal, where threading is a way of life, and learned how to thread at a young age from her family. She came to Mississippi after receiving a scholarship to attend Mississippi University for Women, where she saw an opening in the market for eyebrow threading. 

”My friends loved it when I threaded their eyebrows for them, and kept telling me I should open a business,” said Bhattarai, who is now a graduate student at the University of Mississippi. “I knew it was a great opportunity to bring together my passion for threading and my dream of owning a business.”  

It was. Before long, Bhattarai had her own stores in Columbus and Starkville.

Until the state shut her down.
