Hi, my name is Francis Torres. I'm 20 years old. I was attending Walton High School, but I dropped out when I hit the 12th grade. I love to play sports such as basketball, baseball, football and golf and I'm also available (to talk to people I know and give them advice). I want to be a basketball player, and gym is my favorite subject. (Summer 2004)
Interesting Fact: My interesting fact is that I have two birthdays. The reason why I have two birthdays is because I got shot in my ankle on January 17, 2004. I had the chance to die, but with God's blessing I reborn and had another chance to live.
When Francis got shot in the leg, he realized he had a second chance at life. Another young person was shot in his neighborhood a few months before him and tragically died. Francis' story is about how his life changed after the shooting.
Francis was mentored by Leslie Koren.
