- She returns to selling pots for a noble cause.
The Dominican tv host Francisca Lachapel returns to selling pots in the streets just as she did when she first arrived in the United States 10 years ago: “Those were very hard moments. I went hungry and I lived a year with my suitcase exactly as I brought it. I didn’t know when I was going to leave.”
Currently, Francisca is considered one of the best known tv hosts among the Hispanic public. With her charisma and incomparable beauty, the Dominican has managed to win the hearts of more than one viewer. However, this was not always the case. Before becoming the host of Despierta América, she had to go through many adversities.
What is Francisca Lachapel’s past?
People en Español, shares a bit of Francisca Lachapel’s history when she arrived in the United States about 10 years ago. She stated that she had to sell pots to be survive there. Before this, the actress said in Nuestra Belleza Latina how difficult it was for her.
At the age of 20, Francisca left her country of origin, the Dominican Republic, to start a life alone in the United States. This was a complicated time for her since she survived hunger and poverty: “Those were very hard times because I was alone. I was hungry. In a country of so much abundance, people say no.”
Upon her arrival in the United States, Francisca started selling pots.
Francisca Lachapel revealed that during her participation in Nuestra Belleza Latina in 2015, five years after her arrival, it had been difficult for her to arrive alone and with nothing in a new country. She said that for a long time she didn’t have a permanent place to stay because she couldn’t afford it:
“I went a full year with my suitcase exactly as I had brought it from Santo Domingo (her city of origin) because I could not unpack anywhere. I didn’t know the moment when I was going to leave because I sometimes had no money to pay,” she commented with tears in her eyes, just years after selling pots in the United States.
The beautiful actress remembered her origins in New York City.
After this unfortunate experience that many often go through to achieve “the American dream,” Francisca Lachapel sold pots on a busy street in New York. Almost 10 years since her arrival in Mexico’s neighboring country, the Dominican actress returns to what she once did, but this time to help someone else.
This Monday, the Univisión program Despierta América was broadcast from New York. In it, celebrities would be selling pots on the streets for one day to help a viewer in need. It was through that program that Francisca Lachapel went back to her origins.
Francisca Lachapel remembered her past by selling pots again, 10 years later.
In the broadcast, Francisca said the following with pride and excitement: “Here on this same street, many of you surely saw me. There I would put my little stand and sell my pots. I arrived on August 28, 2010, and for a long time, this put bread on the table.”
People revealed that just like 10 years ago, Francisca set up the little pot stand on the street with the help of Raúl González, with whom she started selling pots again: “Today we are going to be in this same place where I used to sell pots, but now for a good cause.”
“Many of you must have seen me,” said Francisca, revealing that she sold pots on the streets of New York.
Francisca revealed that being in the same place made her remember her past, that difficult past that many often experience to achieve their goals: “There are too many emotions right now. My heart feels joy, it also feels nostalgia, a lot of nostalgia.”
“I remember this little girl who walked from that corner over there trying to stop people to ask them for their phone number so I could go and sell that pot. I feel so grateful and blessed because God gave me the opportunity today to fulfill and live my greatest dream.”
“I was hungry, but I was happy,” said the beautiful actress while selling pots for a good cause.
To end her story, the Dominican actress Francisca Lachapel said that having gone through this experience is something that fills her with great pride. Being there almost 10 years after had no price. It was something that she had not experienced in a long time:
“I can’t explain how I feel. So many memories come to my head. Here in this same corner, I was happy. I laughed. I also cried. I stood up many times [though] hungry, so returning is priceless for me,” Francisca Lachapel commented during Monday’s Despierta América.
