    Daniel Hernandez,

    Intern for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords

    Daniel Hernandez Jr, 21, is a Tucson native and a senior at the University of Arizona studying Political Science. He was a congressional intern for the office of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona's Eighth Congressional District and while on the job assisting Congresswoman Giffords with a constituent event in Tucson on January 8, 2011, Daniel took actions for which he is widely credited with saving the life of the congresswoman after a gunman shot her and 18 other people. His medical training, quick thinking, and brave actions on that day have caused him to be celebrated as a true American hero, although he humbly rejects the title.
