Meet February's Souljourner Larissa.
My Cuba experience was a gift from a dear friend. When I learned I would travel to Cuba, I was excited to get away. A vacation was well overdue. I mean the quintessential relax on the beach, soaking up the sun, drink in hand type of vacation. I had no expectations before my trip to Cuba. Unexpectedly, my experience would change my life forever. I had the opportunity to delve into the lives of the Cuban people. You see, off the resort, right outside of the hotel, lives a community of people who may be poor by common standards, but rich in love, hope, and spirit. They gave me a new perspective on the purpose of life.
