Dare to be Remarkable is a full length documentary that chronicles the life of Alyssa Silva and her journey living with spinal muscular atrophy. As Alyssa navigates through life, she takes us along to show us how she dares to be remarkable in every aspect of her life and inspires those around her to do the same. From graduating college to starting her own nonprofit organization and so much more, Alyssa is a perfect example of how a person's limitations and setbacks cannot, and will not, define the way in which we live. Although she has SMA, SMA does not have her.
