早上7:50,学生通过大门,穿过院子跑,抢着要避免走路的尴尬到上课迟到。因为他们冲刺通过校园,他们看到一个高大的男人与一个友好的微笑,我高兴地在咨询处修剪树篱。他热情地招呼他们返回自己的笑容,然后继续他们的第一期没有第二个想法。 

From an outsider’s perspective, Chris Mendez (Staff) 仅仅是愉快的500彩票网页ylhs谁维护这个美丽的校园。但该男子在播种机是不仅仅是一个场地管理员这么多。先生。门德斯是个人爆棚才能,充满同情。 ESTA场地管理员是不是纯粹的他的职业,他有这么多的维和非凡的故事讲述一个男人。  

当先生。门德斯回家工作一整天后,我在交易剪刀和他的骗子手套和刷子。我创建了令人难以置信的艺术作品摆范围从精心设计的迪斯尼杯,以精致木火刑,复杂的图纸,和美丽的画。门德斯自己的定制设计打开了他的公司,分享他的艺术与世界其他地区。每个月,我被委托制作灵感来自于可重复使用的杯星巴克约20至30迪斯尼卡通片。他的公司允许把他自己的能力和兴趣成为一个兼职的职业。 

门德斯对艺术的热爱他发现那时我只有五岁。与绘图的性向一个孩子,没去他的天赋被忽视。他的教科书和书桌上布满了他的创造力的产品。而不是惩罚他,门德斯的老师会叫他的父母向他们展示他们是如何优其是鼓励他们在艺术班招收和门德斯。 

他同时作为一个艺术家是他的身份的一个重要组成部分的作用,我自豪地还戴着他的头衔作为一个父亲和丈夫。当他回家,我会确保纯粹专注于他的家庭。他目前是100%,因为我扮演他的两个女儿和他的妻子花时间用。他是一个有爱心的爸爸和一个美好的配偶,支持和无条件地爱他的家人。只有经过他的家庭成员都呼呼大睡呢,他开始在他的艺术项目的工作。通过分离他的工作,家庭生活和艺术,我保证我可以在手头的任务或活动完全投入。 

These different facets of his life are mainly exclusive from each other, but they cross over in many respects. For example, his work and art assist his family, his family inspires his art, and his art translates into his work. 

他作为一名场地管理员的工作是不纯粹是为了支付账单,并支持他的家人。门德斯真正喜欢我做什么。对他来说,这是“没有院子的工作,它的艺术。 [他] GET [S]借此丑陋的手掌和清理,“把它变成美丽的东西。此外,他的职业对他来说是物理的必要性。门德斯是不幸的骨骼缺陷,这就要求他要主动行使不断阻碍诞生。如果没有一个工作要求他每天使用的肌肉力量,“肌肉恶化了。”成为一名场地管理员重提升装置30个分支,并利用剪一斤,每天,使其成为艺术家的理想职业。 

ESTA肌肉起着门德斯的生活中起主要作用的不足。除了在它已经影响了他的工作的选择方式,这也影响了他的艺术和家庭生活。他的大女儿被诊断出她的X染色体为先生在相同的突变。门德斯。这种疾病的延误肌肉生长,这意味着他的女儿面临That've在年轻时经历了同样的挑战。不足之处不仅是对一个人的力量阻碍,但他或她的发言为好。 

Understanding the struggles of this obstacle, Mendez and his wife have made sure to provide the help their daughter needs. With speech and physical therapy, their daughter has been able to grow and overcome so much. She began with 20% intelligibility and is now at 70%.

Supporting her and the extra help she needs has been a major motivator in the start-up of Mendez’s design company as well as his most recent project.

我已经进入了六种不同的设计,但都特别强调一双鞋那我希望会赢。促进你的设计是很多个人的重要性,使其成为一个项目That've持有接近他的心脏。显示的是一个老式的怀表上的时钟的时间跟我结婚时存在。我已经进入比赛赢得并使用这笔奖金他女儿的治疗资助的希望。 

All the profit he makes from his company and the money he would receive from the Vans contest would go towards giving his daughter “the opportunity to live a normal life by helping her strengthen her muscles and her mind.” 

With the money he has made from the company he started, his family has been able to pay for the additional help their daughter requires. Without all the therapy, “she would be lost. It would be a lifelong struggle.” 

考虑到影响这不足对人员有他的生活和他的女儿,门德斯Also've决定,如果我要赢得比赛,我将捐出所有通过她的困难的情况下帮助他的女儿进入到组织的一部分。我想,以确保具有相同障碍的人可以得到帮助,他的女儿,不管他或她的财务背景。 

门德斯已经证明了自己作为一个多才多艺的人。他印象深刻的却超出了多么不可思议的艺术能力,我也无疑是值得同情的,有弹性,和真诚。我一直在面临着许多挑战,并-被迫克服生活他这么多的障碍。尽管斗争然而,我忍着,我依然坚定的乐观,在他生活中的事情升值维护。先生。门德斯是如此比场地管理员得多。他是一个丈夫,一个父亲,一个朋友,一个艺术家,一个灵感,最重要的是一个英雄。
