My name is Herbert Hernández, I was born in San Salvador, El Salvador. My father Arturo Hernández by profession Construction worker, my mother María Elia López Salesperson and it is from her that I inherit the skills in Sales and Negotiations. I am the sixth of nine brothers. When I was just 10 years old my mother takes me to sell fruits and meat from house to house, when I was 13 years old I was already selling at Cuscatlán Stadium and I always managed to sell everything before the team started playing and so I enjoyed watching Soccer and Magico Gonzalez on those magical afternoons.
When I was 14 years old, I started studying woodworking at the Fe y Alegría school, after a few years of learning in 1985 I was already working as a Cabinet Maker. The Civil War in El Salvador lasted 12 years and left us with a lot of damage both physically and emotionally and that is why I decided to emigrate to the United States looking for a better life.
