Camila Cabello is Writing Music About Her Journey from Cuba
Cabello's journey from Cuba to America was when she was only six years old and says it will be an important theme in her solo musical career.
"Right now I'm in the process of writing about our whole journey," she said. "I want to make a love song for immigrants. That word, immigrant, has such a negative connotation -- I can just imagine all the little girls who have dreams of coming here and feel unwanted. It inspires me in my music to do my best to give [them] the light that I have. I want to be what people think of when they think of America -- a person who, no matter what her first language was or what her religion is, can see her dreams come to life if she works hard enough."
