Mu Hernandez is recognized as the March 2020 DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. Mentor of the Month. Hernandez was selected because she has shown outstanding commitment to our core values and has built an admirable relationship with her mentee Christian.
Muhammad is a Junior at Temple University majoring in English. DonCARES Executive Director Donovan Forrest met Hernandez in the summer of 2019 shortly after he applied to be a mentor.
Muhammad chose to become a mentor for DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. because he is always looking for opportunities to impact younger communities in a positive light. As a Resident Assistant at Temple University and an aspiring educator, Hernandez says it was also important to him that DonCARES puts a lot of focus on the relationship between minorities and mentors, more specifically, how the presence of a mentor can dramatically alter the lives of these children.
