Sometimes I feel I must do important things in addition to my work, things that make a contribution to myself as a human been and as a professional, and I feel it’s difficult for me to plan and control that. Not everything can be perfect in life, right?
I am scriptwriter and director of radio programs. I’ve been doing this for many years and this is definitely what I like to do the most: dreaming. I’m used to coming to this park to write… This is the 21th Street, in Vedado. Silence, the tranquility of the place, the people passing by, the neighbors chatting, the children playing, a very young couple kissing without bashfulness on the lawn, the senior citizens doing exercise to become stronger… all that definitely helps me in the process of writing.
I work like fashion model in my free time and when I have the opportunity, like extra in films and in television shows. Life in Cuba is not easy like a many people believe and you have to learn how to survive and to make good use of the opportunities that turn up to you. Anyway, the university is my priority in these moments.
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?
