Collected in partnership with Perth Festival and The Empathy Museum, A Mile in My Shoes is an extraordinary collection of stories that give us a glimpse into the lives of Western Australians from all walks of life.

Margaret Watroba fell in love with the mountains and dreamed of climbing the Himalayas as a young girl — she has since attempted to summit Everest Base Camp four times.
