Adriana Hernandez

December 22, 2015 webteam Mentee Spotlight: South Kern

Adriana is a junior at Golden Valley High School and is in her second year in the Building Healthy Communities AmeriCorps mentoring program. With the guidance of her mentors, Ruth Vizcaya in 2014-2015 and Krhystal this year, she has grown tremendously in the past year and a half. “I am fortunate to have her as one of my mentees this year,” said Krhystal, “Because she is an exceptional person. She has shown dedication in her school work and is working very hard in all her studies. She still has room for improvement but I am so proud of her thus far.” Adriana recently earned her driver’s permit after studying with Krhystal during her mentoring sessions. “What I hope for Adriana is that she completes high school and goes to college to earn her AA in Nursing like she dreams of doing,” adds Krhystal.
