Philo Boys: Julnor

Meet Julnor. He is an orphan without a mother or a father and came to live in the boy's village at Espwa when he was 8 years old. Now he is 21 and has just completed his studies in Philo in town. Julnor's height naturally got him interested in basketball, and he enjoys playing with his friends and the other Espwa kids whenever he can. Although is tall and bold stature can come off as intimidating, Julnor embodies the personality of a "gentle giant." He is respectful and reserved, but his more boisterous side comes out around his friends.

This year, Julnor is dedicating a year of service to Espwa by working in the pharmacy in the clinic. Being around all the medical staff is good practice for his future ambitions. Someday he would like to go to college to study to be a surgeon. He says he is inspired by two people: both Father Marc and Christian Nethling Barnard, the first surgeon to successfully perform a human heart transplant.
