La Liga en Cuba is a non-profit organization that was created to promote soccer in Cuba and support its rapidly growing community. Through a variety of services, La Liga is dedicated to providing a safe and positive environment where Cuban youth can develop important values through competition, while giving Cuban coaches, referees and volunteers the opportunity to develop their skills in a professional setting.
In May 2017, I had the immense opportunity to travel to Havana, Cuba, and work as an organizer, photographer and videographer for La Liga's first event – La Copa Artecorte. After this project, I co-produced and edited a short documentary titled “A Beautiful Game” and worked with Anton Buri, the founder of the organization, on planning future ventures and establishing strategic partnerships.
