Gilbert

"When I grow up I want to be a Race Car Driver"

Gilbert is 15 years old and has been in the One Heart home since 2009. Both of his parents passed away when he was young leaving him orphaned and alone. When he first arrived, Gilbert was the most difficult boy for our house parents to handle in the homes. He would not listen to or respect anyone, he would start fights with the other boys and was rude to everyone. Gilbert was always in and out of school because of his bad behaviour and would try to influence other older boys to misbehave aswell.

Today Gilbert is a completely changed person. He is the most improved boy in the home and because he is now one of the older boys in the home, he cares for the younger kids and is now influencing them in a positive way. Gilbert really loves art and if nurtured, he can have a great future as an artist.
