Grad student who supports parents gets $500
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Alan Hernandez from Tujunga was given the chance to give $500 to anyone he wants, thanks to ABC7's Pay It Forward campaign on Facebook.
He chose Fernando Vallin, a University of La Verne grad student. Vallin pays for his own schooling and supports his parents, all while finding time to volunteer in his community.
Hernandez says Vallin is a true inspiration for first generation Americans fighting to get ahead.
