The Journey As a man of many moving talents, Jacob especially loves being a zumba instructor, (including a class for 60+) because he gets to be creative and meet new people. “They all have something to share that helps me grow,”Jacob says. He shows people that because he is comfortable being himself, it’s OK for other people to be themselves, too.
Road Blocks “I don’t see an obstacle in my life. I’m not like, ‘Once I get there, I’ll be happy.’ No, my whole journey makes me happy. I am from Guadalajara, Mexico and now I love living in Utah. I love to smile, I love to laugh. We all have hard situations, but there’s always a bright side.”
Vacation Destination “Disneyland. It’s such a family-oriented place. I always wanted to be an animator, but I don’t have the talent. I love the dancing, costumes, shows, details. It’s the happiest place on earth and I’ve been there 35 times.”
Local Destination “Downtown Provo. It’s very iconic to Utah County. It has a little bit of everything.”
