Daniel Hernandez helped save the life of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and his life experience is a source of true inspiration in this heartfelt memoir, an absorbing eyewitness view of a shocking event wrapped in a fluent, engaging self-portrait (Kirkus Reviews).I dont consider myself a hero, says Daniel Hernandez. I did what I thought anyone should have done. Heroes are people who spend a lifetime committed to helping others. When Daniel Hernandez was twenty years old, he was working as an intern for US Representative Gabrielle Giffords. On January 8, 2011, during a Congress on Your Corner event, Giffords was shot. Daniel Hernandezs quick thinking before the paramedics arrived and took Giffords to the hospital saved her life. Hernandezs bravery and heroism has been noted by many, including President Barack Obama. But while that may have been his most well-known moment in the spotlight, Daniel Hernandez, Jr., is a remarkable individual who has already accomplished much in his young life, and is working to achieve much more. They Call Me a Hero explores Daniels life, his character, and the traits that a young person needs to rise above adversity and become a hero like Daniel. His story is inspiring not only for his bravery during the shooting, but also for his commitment to education advocacy and public service, including his appointment to Tucsons Commission on LGBT issues and election to the local school board. Photos of Hernandez with family, friends, colleagues, and political figures are included (Publishers Weekly).


Daniel Hernandez is a freelance journalist in Mexico City and a contributor at the Mexico City bureau of the Los Angeles Times. He is a former staff writer of the Los Angeles Times and LA Weekly. His journalism has appeared over a variety of platforms and regions, including All Things Considered and Latino USA on NPR, The Guardian, El País, and Gatopardo. Daniel is a native of San Diego and a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley.
