Grether Ballaga Perez, 25, plays the cello for the orchestra of the Grand Havana Theater of Cuba. She studied music at the prestigious "Instituto Superior de Arte" and dreams of playing for an orchestra outside of Cuba. "The hardest thing in my life was when my father disappeared when I was 15 year old. Everything in my life changed after that and we still don't know where he is. He worked on a cargo ship so we think maybe he's in Europe with another family." Of Cuban women, she says "a Cuban woman can become what she wants to be in this culture. I believe we have the same rights as men and are prepared to face any system, any society."
