AVONDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A west Valley man is using his disability to inspire others to overcome their fears and achieve their dreams.
C.J. Hernandez, a 27-year-old barber from Avondale, was diagnosed with autism at 3 years old and used to be scared of getting a haircut.
"What got me real intimidated was the clipper, how it makes the noise, and the shears. I thought they were going to cut my eyes out," said Hernandez.
