Born with a congenital limb difference to Cuban ex-patriots, Mr. Mondejar has dedicated his life to helping those like himself who faced adversity because of real or perceived disabilities gain opportunities to pursue their life’s goals. A special focus for him has been mentoring young people to learn the skills to pursue both higher education and establish career opportunities.
Mr. Mondejar has been recognized by numerous community and government organizations for his work as an advocate for the community with disabilities. He also serves on several boards and advisory committees such as Partners with Youth for Disabilities and Work without Limits.
Within the framework of his advocacy, Mr. Mondejar focuses on both outreach and education to help build bridges of understanding between the community with the disabilities and the larger communities they reside. Often through both civic organizations or community education, Mr. Mondejar can be found creating further opportunities for improvement to the services and accessibility of that community. These efforts also are part of his humanitarian efforts to his ancestral homeland of Cuba, where he has coordinated groups of volunteers over a decade plus to bring medical supplies, clinical knowledge and needed goods to support the communities with disabilities often discarded in a totalitarian environment.
