Hello my name is Rigoberto Gaona. I've been living in Los Angeles since 1989. My passion used to be marathon racing throughout Los Angeles. I have several trophies and medals that I've obtained from my races. I wanted to be an advocate for individuals with developmental disabilities that are unable to speak. I want people to know that we have the same responsibilities as others to be independent. I also want people that are struggling with this same adversity to know that that you can still be independent and live a normal lifestyle.
