The Journey of Life is to Give


A note about the film:

I have highlighted the life of Marta Guembes in this documentary entitled: The Journey of Life is to Give.

The reason I chose to film Marta is because I wanted to tell the story of a Guatemalan woman who is a community activist. I believe her story is important because it shows the impact that someone can have in their community and how mentors have a valuable place in one’s life. Marta’s main message in life has been to realize and demonstrate how how valuable it is to give to others, in whichever way possible, because by giving what you can to others, you can help make a difference in the world.
