Dare To Dream Big


This is Jose Hernandez Story

It’s about reaching for the stars and how he dared to dream big.

He was brought up in Southern California as a migrant farm worker’s son and helped his parents make a living growing up.

These families endure the hard work and low pay of harvesting crops in hopes of providing a better future for their children.

This is the story of a child who dared to dream big despite his humble beginnings.
