“Farewells are almost always sad. ‘I’m leaving without knowing what’s going on, you know very well that I am the way I am, but I keep coming back home’. I made this version of a song by Carlos Varela that I really like to say goodbye to Cuba, ”Carnota wrote on Instagram, where she covered the aforementioned Varela theme song.
“I want to thank you for helping me grow and for the beautiful support that I have received in these 3 years. It was a very nice stage in my life, now it’s time to improve even more and face new challenges and goals with more desire than before”, added Carnota, who took the opportunity to thank his theater teacher, Massiel Dueñas, for teaching him to be better and to feel passion for what he does.
“I leave behind my country, my childhood, some of my friends and part of my family, it is difficult to understand what it feels like, it seems simple, but it is sad,” concluded the influencer, not without first wishing that Cuba finds the happiness “someday”.
