Ismael had a happy but turbulent upbringing in Cuba: two family members committed suicide in his home due to schizophrenia. He has heard voices himself but deals with them by being aware of and proactive about his mental health. It hasn’t gotten in the way of being successful –  he has been a radio and TV presenter with his own show Cala on CNN en Español, and is a producer, journalist, motivational author, and speaker.
