Cuban Stories

I love it when searching for the news I run into personal stories of Cuban exiles - their flight from Cuba, their struggle and ultimately their success. Last week it was Olga Dazzo, the female CEO from an insurance company, who shares the emotions of Carlos Eire. Today it is a Northwest Airlines pilot from Michigan. Meet Pedro Haber:
Pedro Haber hasn't been back to his native Cuba for more than 35 years, since his family escaped Fidel Castro's regime when he was 2 years old.

That outlook came from his father, Haber said, who went to night school after leaving Cuba because the degree he got there was not recognized in other countries. Haber will follow in his father's footsteps again, in a sense, as he starts weekend classes at Thomas M. Cooley Law School. He said he's seeking a law degree because of the uncertainty in the airline industry.
Please do read the whole story, it is a pick me up that we don't often get in the media. Enjoy!
