  • Meet Isabel
  • Hi, my name is Isabel. I am 11 years old.
  • I live near Havana in Cuba with my Mom, Dad & my Grandpa
  • The Big  Announcement
  • Everyone is free to leave Cuba!
  • The Beginning of Freedom
  • The First Problem...
  • OH NO..
  • OH NO..
  • OH NO..
  • OH NO..
  • OH NO..
  • OH NO..
  • OH NO..
  • OH NO..
  • OH NO..
  • The Fatal Ocean
  • Today the ban on leaving Cuba was lifted. My family is finally free!! We can escape to the United States to have a better life.
  • Tonight my Mother, my Father, my Grandfather, our neighbor and my best friend Ivan, Luis (Ivan's brother), Amara (Luis's girlfriend), Senora Castillo (Ivan's Dad), Mrs.Castillo (Ivan's Mom) and I left Cuba for good! 
  • Saving Senora Castillo
  • Boom, boom and then silence. Just as I thought everything was going to be okay the engine of our boat stopped. The boat is filling with water, and we almost got killed by a large tanker. Thankfully Amara and Senora Castillo were able to temporailly fix the boat enough to steer us to safety. I hope we make it to Florida!
  • Everything was okay... And then it wasn't. A wave crashed, taking Senora Castillo with it. Pulling him in to the ocean's fatal current.  A current that was currently drowning my best friends's father. I had to do something fast!!
  • Someone had to save him. At the moment no one was. So I did it, I jumped into the ocean's fatal current. I spotted a dark object ahead. A dark object that appeared to be breathing. The object was Senora Castillo. Time was running out. He was going to drown, unless I did something. I swam as fast as I could and grabbed Senora Castillo by the hand. And then I pulled, harder than I had ever pulled before. I pulled Senora Castillo to the surface. I saved him. He was going to live and we were going to make it to Florida, I just knew it!
