It’s Time To Make A Film! I’m Going Back To Cuba In Late June (CONFIRMED)
Through all the uncertainty of what will happen and when, my second trip to Cuba is now officially confirmed. Through my second seven-day journey, I’ll look to capture the true heart of the Cuban people, providing some powerful visuals unlike anything that’s been properly captured from this part of the world. Traveling with First Hand Aid, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing medical aid to the Cuban people, I’ll travel across rural areas of the island country that the GVSU Baseball team didn’t get the opportunity to see.
I’m uncertain as to our exact agenda, but I’m not entirely concerned about it right now. There are still quite a few weeks ahead of me until I leave with them at the end of June, and there is a lot of planning to do on my end to ensure I have everything I need to make the journey a success.
This time the experience will be a lot different. Gone are the times where I can spend my nights in a fancy hotel by the pool, and eat complementary breakfast and dinners as I travel down the glass elevators to the first highly decorated floor. No people, this time I’m going to get into the action of what it’s like to work as an aid to the poor people of Cuba. Those who are in need, and those who have little as far as tangible goods and luxuries. Many of the people don’t even have enough drinking water and as I witnessed first hand during my first stay, a lot of times some of these people need to work very hard to get enough food to feed each other.
I’ll be coming back from my internship in Hollywood, California around June 20th, and then I’ll have just 2 days to prepare myself for the trip once again to Toronto, Ontario. Due once again to politics, we must leave out of Canada in order to fly to Cuba. This second journey will last from June 23rd – June 30th, and I’ll most likely get back in Michigan in time to get a quick rest before I begin completing the Business part of my educational career.
