Rosa Maria Paya: A rising leader for all Cubans on the island and in exile
Although she was forced into the spotlight at a young age by the vicious murder of her father by the Castro dictatorship, Rosa Maria Paya has risen to the occasion and is quickly becoming a leader for all Cubans.

This week, we have been following Rosa Maria Paya, the daughter of deceased Cuban pro-democracy leader Oswaldo Paya, during her visits to Chile and Uruguay, where she has met with dignitaries and journalists, supporters and detractors.
Judging by her courage, poise, persuasion and grace, it is clear that we are witnessing a leader in the making.
