My name is Saul Hernandez, 36 years old, I am a father of four very active boys and a husband to a lovely wife. I work part-time, coach inner-city kids year round in soccer, flag football, baseball, and basketball. After this quarter, it will be my first full year attending Foothill College. Just under a year, I got in a car accident and ruptured 3 upper back discs, which allowed me to re-explore the mission to go back to college. Unfortunately, I was recently laid off of work on my 10 anniversary of service, but I looked at it as a blessing in disguise, now I could explore other ventures.
My main interest is sports, I am a 7 year RAIDERS season ticket holder I have been attending Raiders games since 1997 and went to the SuperBowl in San Diego, and it was one of my most memorable good time road trip sports attraction moment until they the Raiders got killed in the 3rd quarter. One of my favorite hobbies is exploring nature, I like to go on hikes locally and outside the bay area. My recent hikes where to Yosemite Park, Tahoe and Donner Pass with my family. The good thing about hiking anybody can do it, you don’t need to be an expert or a certain age unless of course you doing it to the extreme. The most interactive hobby I am involved in is coaching, I love to see young kids succeed and watch them have fun playing the sport. I also play sports I am a coach and player for Co-ed and Men’s softball team, which was until I had my accident. After all, that the best thing I like to do is hang out with family, especially on a lazy day Watching a new movie and grub on some good greasy snacks.
My Goal is to graduate from Foothill College in the next year and a half with my business degree. My plan right now is to get a job in the City of San Jose or at the County of Santa Clara any job to get in. So by the time I receive my degree I will be able to move up or transfer within. Also, I have an idea to build a non-profit to help the youth in need to stay active in sports. I feel it is my mission to get this started before I graduate. The idea is to be a support system of the community's public resources to build successful sports sponsoring program that will have growth mindset a positive impact on the attitude and health of the area's children. Empower and enlighten underprivileged youth and adults so that they can envision a positive future and brighter tomorrow through mentoring, music and the arts, sports, and challenging educational programs.
