I had the great privilege of going to Havana, Cuba with UBELONG, an International NGO which facilitates service learning and volunteering abroad for local development projects. A week before President Obama’s historic visit to meet with Raúl Castro, I was there to document the expedition of 30 Americans. It was a transformational trip because I was able to talk directly with Cubans. I was able to see a Havana already in transition to accommodate the influx of Americans. I saw first hand how people lived and heard how they felt about President Obama and the Rolling Stones' upcoming trip. More than anything, there was hope in the air. Read more about my reflections on a three-part blog post. Come back again when a short documentary will be completed by early May.
