Gary is a serious, hard-working 14-year-old who has studied at the program since 2012. He lives in a small, rural home with his large and loving family. Even though Gary’s mother is a busy single working mom, it is clear that she prioritizes her children above all else, which already gives Gary a big advantage. Gary is intelligent and is in our most advanced English class. He would like to continue on to University and we believe that with continued academic support, this is a very real possibility. He tells us that his favorite food is “everything!” His favorite activities are playing soccer, participating in dance club and music classes, and going on field trips with his class.
