“My mom raised me and I quickly because an independent little person with a lot of personality.”
In Harnessing Wild Horses from PechaKucha Night New Orleans Volume 18 Musa Alves is a DJ, photographer, international fun haver, cheeseburger enthusiast, Brazilian redneck. In this presentation Musa goes chronologically through her life because reckless youth has been a constant theme. She is the product of a Mississippi Delta Debutant and a Brazilian bassist. In her life, she has fallen off the horse a few times, but has always managed to get back up. Whether reckless youth has led to ambition or ambition has led reckless youth, Musa has always carved her own path by harnessing the wild horses that drives you to do the things that scare you, and challenge you, and make you vulnerable.
