Francisco Enrique Avila attends Mount Carmel High School and plays soccer. He is 17 years old, and his goals are to finish high school and to attend a four- year college or university such as DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana.
As a kid, Avila grew up on Chicago's north side, although now he lives on the west side of the city. He attended St. Stanislaus Kostka School for preschool through eighth grade.
Avila has a twin brother Luis, who also attends MC, and an older sister Fabiola. The strength and effort Avila's parents demonstrated in moving from their native Mexico to Chicago and raising him in the United States motivates him everyday to wake up and give his all in everything he does. His goal is to make them proud and to make sure their sacrifices were worth it.
