Good Vibes Wanted!!!
Hello World!… My name is Anthony Hernandez Jr., (40yrs.), Puerto Rican born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Yea… You already know… Go Cubs!!!
I am a proud father, but I’ve missed out on my children’s first steps, words, and most of their lives. I admit I’ve broken more hearts than not; however, during my journey there has been a shift in my disposition and a gradual change in how I see my life. I began to believe that I could be more than the trauma of my past. I’m proud of how I went about everything with strength, grace, confidence, and just being, well-able to handle life’s challenges and obstacles. While waking up everyday with positivity and the ability to get up from my knock down, staying true to myself, and never letting anyone bring me down to their level. What I’m sure of is that everything in life is either a lesson or a blessing. Despite everything I haven’t given up on myself. I’m just that type of individual that will go that extra mile.
During my incarceration I’ve completed many of my academic classes and a horticulture course in pursuit of my Associate’s in Liberal Studies. Now, I’m excited to mention that I’ll be starting my culinary classes. Yup!… Still aspiring in knowledge & skills and expanding my mind while feeding my soul in this oppressed environment. In addition, I have a degree in HVAC and I”m studying Spanish independently to become fluent.
So, I’m taking advantage of the time I have and staying ambitious, so I can make my life as fulfilling as possible to become a better human being, Father and Man.
On another note, my pastime activities consist of studying, working out, drawing, reading, and listening to various genres of music such as: Rap, Chicago house music, freestyle, reggaeton, salsa, bachata, etc…
I’m just looking for those who are humble and true to who they are. There’s no need to impress, no acts, just someone honest in their own skin. Well, this is all for now, so I hope I’ve piqued your interest and that this may be the beginning of many more hellos! So, if you would like to sign up to correspond you may at www.ConnectNetwork.com. My location is Western Illinois Correctional Center. I also have a gmail account email@example.com in which you may leave a message for me, but it’s not managed by me. God Bless you all…
