These are the two things film director Daresha Kyi hopes all audience take away from “Chavela”:
“It is never too late to realize your dreams!”
Kyi shares that “Chavela made her comeback in 1991 when she was 71 years old, and went on for another 22 years. She came back from the brink of destruction, so it’s never too late, no matter how bad it is. You can recover and you can comeback.”
It’s your job to share your gifts! To do that you have lead an authentic life and be true to yourself!
Chavela showed us what an authentic life looks like and what it is like to be true to yourself. She candidly shared that although it may be hard and challenging that you will survive, thrive and you will be so glad you were true to yourself. There is only one you with all the gift and talents you were meant to live. And you will not get to live them if you are not being true to yourself. So, if you come here with a purpose, gift and talents, it’s your job to share them. And how do you do that? By being authentic and being true!
