Alessio is 11 years old, a friendly and cheerful boy who enjoys attending his local elementary school and playing soccer at recess. His favourite subjects are math and science. One day Alessio wants to become a storm chaser.

Outside of school, Alessio participates in various activities such as swimming and soccer. He is in a soccer houseleague and enjoys attending games and watching his favourite team, the Toronto FC. Part of Alessio’s success today can be attributed to all the support and encouragement from the caring staff at Giant Steps.
