AMIGUITO OF THE WEEK ~ Pedro*

Goofy, spunky, and energetic are all words to describe Pedro*. Never taking life too seriously, he is always ready with a joke, prank, or sly smile. Pedro is extremely loyal to his older brother Gilberto*, with whom he is just a year apart in age. Their relationship is beautiful to watch. Pedro is quite smart and is thriving in third grade at the Amigos de Jesus school - that is, when he keeps his chatting in check! These days, Pedro is famous around Amigos for his rapping abilities. He and two of his friends won first place in the Amigos talent show last summer when they sang "Nota de Amor" by Carlos Vives.
