By right, I have Cuba tattooed in my heart

71 years have passed since December 10, 1948, when the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) unanimously adopted the resolution of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which in its 30 articles defends and promotes respect for Man and his fundamental freedoms.

However, seven decades later, it hurts to know that there are still so many victims of religious, ethnic and even racial discrimination; that in many places in the world children are forced to work to survive; that not everyone has equal access to quality education and health.

In Cuba, fortunately, our reality is very different. It is assured by a young woman who has lived her entire life coupled to an artificial machine to be able to breathe, and despite that she has not been deprived of her rights.

On the contrary, I have been able to live fully. At 29, I am a professional, as I just left the hospital and started studying. Since I couldn't move from my house, the teachers went to my home to teach me. So it was from Primary to University. And my mother, unable to work to take care of me, received a pension for it.

I try to return to the Revolution every gesture of his, from my position as a professional journalism , and with the clear vision that our social project may be perfectible, but it is undoubtedly the most human of all.

And taking into account that a nation secures its future if it treasures good men and women, Cuba has it guaranteed. Millions are grateful, including young people, because we have seen how despite the economic complexities with which most of us were born and grew up  in the 90s , and the strong blockade of the United States, studying, improving ourselves, and having a secure job and the right to a healthy recreation, is our right. Therefore, every time I hear or read infamies about Cuba, I insist that my story be known: clear and precise of how much is done on this Island for the welfare of its children.
