Chanda was in was a music prodigy, having begun playing piano at an early age. She played violin and viola as well as the piano. She played in the orchestra through High School, even performing with the Mariachis at Travis. She studied and performed with the HTU choir behind artists like Phillip Bailey and Denice Williams, although her Great-grandmother just liked when she played the fiddle. My music was her dream and aspiration. She wanted to be a music teacher and share that love. She found she also enjoyed working with the young people generally. She worked over time for Austin Eastside Story, Boys & Girls Clubs, & Extend-A-Care.

Beyond all that, she knew and loved the Lord.
