The 28-year-old joined Inter from Lazio in the January transfer window and says that he has enjoyed the challenges that have faced him at the San Siro.
"Yes, I think I have grown without doubt," Hernanes told ESPN Brazil. "I arrived in Milan with a very big responsibility.
"It is one thing to play at a place where you are loved by everyone and where you are perfectly comfortable, but it is another to arrive at a new club where you have to meet the high expectations of your new fans.
"Naturally, it is part of the growth of a player, and I have been very happy to face this challenge."
