We knew ourselves many years ago… who can remembers that? We studied side by side at the university and next, we decided to get married. It was a quite beautiful wedding, at the church, and I have to say… I have to give thanks to all the people who made this possible, and above all, my parents who are definitely the best in the world. Nothing would have worked out without their support. We are very satisfied with the life that we have at this point. Now we believe we are much happier than before, for sure.
It is difficult to come to a certain age and find out that the people that some time ago took responsibility for you, now completely depend on you for everything. This is a moment when I have had to take responsibility for everything. My parents are right now seriously ill and they need me. Life is complicated. Time does not forgive anybody. You just have to learn how to recover and to go on. It is so sad to come to a certain age and realize that you can’t look after yourself anymore.
I am a model since I was 13 years old, but it’s been only two years since I do it professionally. Since I was a child, I liked to be photographed, being the center of attention (laughs). It is something I still enjoy very much (photo sessions). I also work like an actress at musical videos and like extra in feature films. Nowadays, my business career is what’s most important for me.
I was born and raised in the city of Havana. Since I was a child, my passion has always been fishing. I believe that’s the only thing that has not changed in all my life. When I am fishing I feel peace, I forget everything, problems at home stop existing. It is like if…fishing could take me elsewhere where it’s only me, and nothing else. Fishing is not only a passion. It’s also a way of subsistence. Sometimes I am doing all right. Others, much better (laughs) and that allows taking home some food and at the same time doing some money. I can assure you it is thanks to this hobby that today I am here chatting with you. It’s saved my life, definitely.
My name is Aimé. I am from “La Lisa” neighborhood, that makes me feel very proud, and I am singer, ballerina and model. I have worked for very important agencies. I like very much my work, I like that people look at me on stage and applaud. I like very much what I do. I must say I feel totally fulfilled in my job. I do not ask life for more, only health to be able to continue forward.
When you come to certain age you realize that you can’t lose time anymore. Then you realize that getting dressed up, leaving home for a walk and spending a while with your lady friends it’s not hard to accomplish, but so simple!!! One needs that, going out into the street, seeing people, enjoying yourself. At the end, what is life if not those small moments of happiness that you go accumulating over the years as time goes by?
My only dream in life has always been to live in the United States. And I’ve made a lot of efforts to make that dream come true, but only God knows why I’m still here. I hope this 2016 comes with good news for me. Let’s see what happens. One of the things I like the most is martial arts. Actually I’ve practiced some of them, like ju-jitsu and aikido, but time doesn’t help me much lately. I’ve been watching the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) for years. That’s truly a passion to me.
This place is open since the Cuban Government gave permission to all citizens in this country to have their own businesses. It happened not so long ago. And it was one of the first business of its kind. However, I’ve been working here around one year, and to be honest, I can’t complain. I like what I do very much.
