Philo Boys: Placide
Placide is 20 years old, and is often a favorite of visitors, as he effortlessly forms strong friendships with each group that visits. Placide enjoys playing soccer, and sings alongside his friends in Espwa's hip-hop group Babtime. When he's not wowing the crowd at Spectak performances, he is studying his favorite subjects, English and Chemistry. Placide dreams of traveling the world, and wants to attend college in the United States to become an entrepreneur. Placide is inspired by the strength and optimism of each orphan at Espwa, and by Father Marc for all he does to sustain that hope. Placide is extremely accountable, and works hard at everything from visitor coordination, to teaching himself to play the piano.
