He has good grades- all "A"'s; his favorite subjects are math, tech, physics and chemistry and hopes to be an engineer like his father. Active in the Catholic Action Youth Club, he participates in spiritual activities and helps with charitable events in his parish and city. His photo album shows the 3 brothers hugging, large photos of cousins, aunts and uncles at a barbecue. He plays basket ball since age 8, and continues to this day on the provincial team. He also loves tennis and computer games. His English is high average and no doubt when he arrives, his immersion in his host family, high school, teammates and friends will help him to work on his accent and eventually dream in English! He loves climbing, hiking especially in the mountains, and runs 10 K for charitable causes. His health is considered "excellent" by his physician and he is approved for PE activities.
