Cuba. The language is Cubanese.
What is a traditional food from your country?
I’m partial to bananas, cheese and olives seasoned with the tears of the baboons.
What was the biggest culture shock you’ve experienced at Kalani?
I was surprised by the lack of respect and the hatred for your president. In Cuba, we cherish our leader. In every home, there is a picture of him hanging above their hearths and altars. He is a guru to the Cuban people.

Hunting baboons in the jungle. I have a few scars on my buttucks from the baboons. They were earned in battle.
How do you say ‘hello’ and ‘I love you’ in Cubanese?
