Gastón lives in a small house with his parents and his three siblings. The family considers Gastón’s education to be the most important thing. His older brother had to leave school because his girlfriend got pregnant and he had to start working. In order to prevent Gastón and his other siblings from a similar experience, his parents attach value to sexual education and they support their children in their school work.
Gastón always has always dreamed of becoming a professional soccer player but ever since he has become a Give An Opportunity scholar he has realized that he has to finish school in order to be really successful in life. This is why he’s really ambitious to get good grades and would like to study engineering after secondary school.
In his free time, Gaston plays soccer with his friends and enjoys participating in the extra-curricular events of Give An Opportunity. His favorite activities are the rehearsals for the theatre show and the magic workshop that was offered to the students.
