Education and perseverance are qualities he holds in high regard. It’s no surprise, then, that his role models he are Martin Luther King, Barack Obama and his own older brother. “My brother never gives up on trying to reach his dreams,” says Gio proudly. “He never stops trying.”And though he’s faced obstacles in his own young life, Gio, too, hasn’t stopped going after what he’s looking for. “I want a good family with caring parents,” he says. “I’d like to know what that feels like.”
