Perks of the Job
One of the many perks of my new job is that when artists come, I host! It's neat to get an opportunity to meet important people and talk to them on a more personal level. Recently, Alina Fernandez (Fidel Castro's only publicly known daughter) came to speak at Austin Peay State University as one of our Global Passport Series speakers. We had about 150 people show up and it was really interesting! She talked about how her mother and Castro met and how she came about. She also talked about her escape from Cuba to the U.S. and how it has impacted her life. She was a neat lady and I enjoyed getting to talk to her. She recently became a U.S. citizen so God Bless America, Alina!
