Fusion's Jorge Ramos on what he learned covering the 2016 race

We spoke to young Cubans in Havana about their future

Fusion was on the ground in Cuba soon after President Obama and Cuban leader Raul Castro announced their new diplomatic relationship. What will change for young Cubans who live on the island now?

Many saw positive change coming as a result of the deal – a better economy, access to the internet, improved relations with the United States and more options for you people were common themes among the young Cubans we spoke with.

“We need progress,” said one young man, who wore shades and an American flag tank top.

Others hoped that improvement would be possible without undermining the country’s standing in terms of healthcare or access to education.

“Without improving our principals, our ideals, maybe we can improve [our] economic and financial [situation],” said one young woman.
