For the month of August, we have chosen Hernan whom has been with our organization for a few years now. In that time we have seen him blossom into a more sociable and adventurous person with the help of his community educators. Most recently, those community educators have been Amanda and George. Although he can be a bit timid at times, deep down he is a jokester! He loves to make jokes and add in comments for comedic relief to conversations. This is an attribute which is showing itself more and more each day, and one we hope everyone will have the pleasure of experiencing soon.

Hernan’s hobbies include watching horror movies, especially in the movie theater as the atmosphere provides an exciting environment that you can’t get in a home theater setting; specifically the smell of popcorn, the large comfy seats, and peoples reactions to the particularly frightening moments in each horror movie. Hernan is also working on his fitness and health goals in life. He’s achieved some of these goals by making hiking an integral part of his plans and trying his best to stick to a better diet plan guided by his educators. Hernan is also a dedicated hard working employee of the Los Angeles City Public Library.

One of his educators George, says he admires Hernan’s “love of life and how he finds joy in the simple things. For example, his ability to take take a moment to read and find a quiet spot to relax, which provides Hernan with much satisfaction.” Amanda notes that he “is a very easy going, go with the flow type of person.”  The D.E.S.I. team wishes nothing but the best for Hernan and hopes to see him continue to expand his horizons over the coming years.
Please help us in celebrating Hernan this month!
