A message from Ache:
I remember crying so many times because some of my friends, and even my cousins, used to make fun of how poor I was. They would even laugh at the holes in the walls of my little house. I remember telling my mom a few times, “Mom, I already ate at my aunt’s house-you eat” because there was just one small piece of bread to share between the two of us. I also remember her telling me many times since I was a child, “Heiti, you are very special, and you have a big purpose in this life. This is not who you are. You can be whatever you want to be. You just have to dream big and go for it!”
I remember always wanting and trying to be the best I could be at school, trying to prove my worth to people. I can remember so many things. Even after I came to Canada, I still continued to try to prove to everyone around me who and what I was. I think I won”t have to try so hard anymore, since now I am surrounded by people who see my potential and believe in all my dreams and crazy ideas.
I have been lucky enough to be blessed with the best of everything; my family, my friends, my producers, my team, my lawyers, my fans, and especially my level of strength and determination ( myself!). I have met so many people along this journey. Some have stayed, some have not, some of them believed, some did not have the courage to walk beside me. There will be many more people to meet along this road. Hopefully, all believers in my dream.
I consider myself a humble being, who believes that he can change the world by connecting hearts through music, art and images. This is who I Am, and this is who I Am meant to be.
The only message I have for all of you, is to always believe in yourself and in your dreams, no matter how different you may think you are or how hard they may seem to achieve. If you want something badly enough, and you have the courage to fight for it, you will achieve it! For one reason only- there is no one else in this world like you! Every person is a unique and special being.
I hope my story helps others on their journeys, and keeps their hopes and dreams alive.
Love you all,
