SAHA Resident Publishes Book, to Host Storytime on SAHA Facebook Live

August 18, 2020

Follow the San Antonio Housing Authority for a Facebook Live Storytime at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 19, with Johana Hernandez, a SAHA resident who has become a published author with her children’s book “I am a Gift and I Have Many Gifts.”

Hernandez motivates and empowers the audience to explore the gifts they carry, to value themselves and not to compare themselves to others, because even though we are all different, we are all beautiful.

Hernandez, a public housing resident, said she was encouraged to write a book from friends and families who said she can relate to others when she talks about the challenges she overcomes.

“What motivated me to write this story is to share a message to many families and many kids and adults and teenagers that, yes, we have all gone through challenges and obstacles, but you can always move forward — you can do anything as long as you put your mind to it and believe in yourself,” she said

The Read Along is held in conjunction with SAHA’s Education Celebration Month campaign. Follow SAHA on Facebook at @SAHAhousing to listen to the Read-Along with your entire family.
