Sharing the Wisdom of Time Through Storytelling: Jessica Hernandez

Featured Video

As we continue our series of video reflections on Sharing the Wisdom of Time—reflecting on the wisdom learned from our elders—I invite you to enjoy a brief reflection from Jessica Hernandez, Coordinator for Hispanic Youth and Young Adult Ministry for the Diocese of Des Moines, IA. Born in Mexico City, Jessica came to the United States at the age of seven with her mother in search of a better life. She graduated from Iowa State University in 2014 with a B.S. in microbiology and began a career in science before leaving it to enter ministry in 2016. She is currently studying for her M.A. in theology and pastoral ministry at Boston College and is a member of the Loyola Press Speaker Corps. Thank you, Jessica, for sharing your reflections!

Who are the elders who helped “move you forward” in your life?
