“Balancing the Dream: The Images And Experiences Of A First Generation Cuban American” is the creation of published author, Elizabeth Pérez Robertson, a first generation educator who was born in Chicago, Illinois to Cuban political exiles. She has dedicated over thirty years of her life to her profession as a Spanish teacher in secondary schools, a high school administrator, and a university lecturer.
