"When I was little my grandma told me that if I brushed my hair 100 times a day I would be a beautiful woman. My grandma also felt that a strong part of cuban culture is knowing how to peel an orange correctly. I remember when I was little that she would spend hours with me in front of the mirror practicing these repetitive actions. When I was five my world was small and all I knew was my house, my grandparents house, and my school; these places were the stages for my social performance and the preparation I had to peel fruit in front of strangers."
