The Diva ConnectionThe Diva Connection Foundation was founded in 2010 by Chris Linnares, international author, and renowned Brazilian Psychotherapist. The idea for Diva Connection was formulated years ago due to Chris’s personal struggles.
After getting married and leaving a successful career in the tropics of Brazil to move to the tundra of Fargo, North Dakota, Linnares needed to start everything from scratch. At that time, she experienced how a simple connection can have the power to transform someone’s life. “I didn’t know anyone besides my husband; I didn’t know the language enough to be able to work. I felt lost and depressed, and I remember the day my brother connected me with an English teacher from North Carolina –a single mom of 2 kids. She decided to donate 1 hour of her time every two weeks to teach me English. If it weren’t for her I would have never been able to do what I now do today.”
“I truly believe that sometimes to start GIVING big things to the world, we first just need to RECEIVE a little help.”
