Hi, my name is Paulo, but everyone calls me “Galego”; which is a term they use around here for people with lighter skin. Since my father was killed when I was young and our mother’s boyfriend went to prison several months ago, it has just been me, my two brothers, and my mom. My brother and I like playing marbles, soccer, or just wandering around the neighborhood looking for someone to play with. Although we often fight, me and him are nearly inseparable, and we look after each other. I am a very good athlete, and when me and friends find someone with a ball, we play all day long!
