MylifE Ambassador Freda Darvel, is in Washington DC attending AIDS 2012 (http://www.dance4life.com/en/organisation/blog/2012/aids-2012/#.UAZ4n5ldBOc.facebook) the World’s largest gathering on health issues with an expected 40 000 people in attendance. Freda made National news headlines in 2002 when she made it to the final auditions of the Coca Cola Popstar’s whilst living on Jamieson Street in Cape Town, her story brought us all this enormous happy feeling of Hope.
Her life story was captured for 7 years by Swedish Film Producers and her first documentary, “Beneath the Stars” launched at Sithengi in 2004, winning awards Globally and brought Freda’s experience and understanding to the label “street” child. Freda’s story will be heard, it is about the children in our society living in “forgotten worlds” with many labels and little love. She is passionate about the future generations and the choices they make in preparing themselves to live in the 21st Century.
Thank you Katinka Lansink Dodero and dance4life for the opportunity you have given Freda Darvel to attend this Conference and for her bright light to shine and her story to be heard. And biggest love to Mark Dodsworth and Heidi Martin from dance4life South Africa and the RedZebra Foundation for their hearts and determination in impacting the lives of so many of our future generations, with love from all of us The MylifE Foundation x
