“Strong outstanding you!”
We are a group that focuses on empowering individuals to develop skills and build organic relationships through cultural and oral teachings rooted in storytelling and sharing of traditions that support the greater central Texas community. Our goal is to create a space that supports and celebrates the past, present and future endeavors of strong outstanding individuals.
¡S.o.y! is a program offered by the Puerto Rican Culture Center (Austin, TX) as part of our effort to create programs that promote cultural awareness and celebration of cultural traditions in a way that supports individuals and families and builds strong, supportive relationships.
All proceeds from this event will support scholarships that help the Puerto Rican Cultural Center extend our performing arts classes and other cultural programs to students and families who may be passing through a difficult time. Our programs share the fun and joy of Puerto Rican culture and bring people together into an extended “familia.”
February Speaker – Cheryl Chavarria
I’m Cheryl Chavarria, a native Texan, mom of two young boys, and an ever enterprising, convivial woman. I was born in Odessa, Texas, and named after Cheryl Lynn—a ‘70s disco diva who reminded fans ‘round the world that they “Got To Be Real.”
My family shifted to Bucktown, an inner-city ‘hood in Chicago, where kids of all ethnic and economic backgrounds mixed and mingled with oblivious ease. We shifted once again to Dallas, Texas where I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a BA in Finance. With half a Master’s degree in Literature and a whole lot of nerve, I ventured south of the border to the Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende where I began to construct my convivial self.
Convivial…this one guiding word worked its magic in my life and began to lead me on a whole new entrepreneurial path I would call my own. As a result of immense curiosity and desire to savor life and unrelenting courage to face my fears, I’ve voyaged from corporate finance to off-grid travel, from magazine publishing to blogging to authoring my first book, Convivial | A Quest for the Masterpiece Within. Since releasing my book into the world, I’ve been on a mission to consciously create my life and encourage others to do just the same.
This passionate way of living called me to live all that I love about life in Austin and has granted me the fortunate chance to bring my story and talents to the real estate hotbed of opportunity playing out in the Texas Capitol where I promote life, love, and real estate in Texas every day as a real estate consultant, advising newcomers and locals wanting to make their way to enhanced wealth and well-being.
I believe that happiness emanates when you’re living how and where you want to live, and as a self-proclaimed convivial woman and real estate leader in the Lonestar State, I am living out that mission every day and invite you to team up with me in your own special way.
