I was raised in the Catholic religion and attended a private school, The American Dominican Academy from kindergarten through graduation to Business School. While in school, I always enjoyed writing and wrote brief love stories.
In 1957, I met my sweetheart Alex when he was a medical student at the University of Havana. We married on November 3, 196l and we had two daughters, Vivian born in 1963 and Beatriz in 1968.
We lived in the city of Camaguey, Cuba from 1964 until January 1966 where Alex practiced as an Anesthesiologist until we were punished by the Cuban government and first transferred to Nuevitas., for a few months, and then to El Central Elia, Camaguey where we lived until my departure from Cuba in August 29, l969.
When I arrived in the U.S. my daughters and I went to New York, there I worked as a medical secretary to provide for my children and save monies to cover my husband’s travel expenses to leave Cuba.
In August 24, 1974, my husband finally arrived to New York reuniting the family once again. Alex promptly started to prepare to obtain his medical license here in the United States.
