Gaspar-Felipe said he shows good character by always providing help to other students in need and exhibiting positive behavior.

"I speak to them and help students with their work," Gaspar-Felipe said. "I do the right thing at school because we can be good people and not bad. We can help people learn, listen to our teacher, be kind and respectful."
