Cuban blogger gets Journalism Award

This should be an inspiration to a lot of bloggers out there. A Cuban blogger, a 32-year old woman named Yoani Sanchez, received a Spanish Journalism award for her 13-month old blog.

Yoani’s blog, Generation Y, was awarded by “Ortega y Gasset Prize” in Digital Journalism (named after a Spanish philosopher). Sanchez was however unable to leave Cuba to go to Spain and personally received the award herself.

This is a huge feat for a one year old blog and it clearly shows that you don’t need to be a western blogger to get as much recognition in the field of journalism. Yoani, though, is one in a million.

    The video is just a big joke. What is more horrifying is being with a midget, idiot and bully manager for 10 years! You can see that creep in Small precision tools Philippines in libertad, mandaluyong.
