Titan Manor in North Portland has been Julio Lopez Hernandez’s home for as long as he can remember.
“It’s become part of who I am,” Lopez Hernandez, 18, said.
The St. Johns apartment complex is in his earliest memories — the rosebush and little lawn in the courtyard outside his unit and breathless games of tag with his neighbors.
“This is where I learned how to ride a bike, ride a scooter, ride a skateboard,” Lopez Hernandez said.
Lopez Hernandez is now a freshman at George Fox University and the first person in his family to attend college.
