Video: A conversation with Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez

Watch a conversation with Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez

As part of yesterday’s visit to CHC by Yoani Sánchez, she was interviewed in the Elena Díaz-Versón Amos Conference Room by a group of UM students, which included representatives from The Miami Hurricane newspaper, WVUM, UMTV, and the Federation of Cuban Students. The group listened as Sánchez talked to them about her experience as a trained “philologist” and how she has always been drawn to journalism. Her “passion for the new technology” won her over, she said.

“Even though I am not a journalist by profession, I have become a journalist on the run,” she said. “It is a profession that I greatly value. No wonder José Martí, the man who represents the best of the Cuban nation, practiced journalism so masterfully.”
