I’m Raphael and I’m a normal happy 6 year old rebel. At times, when I'm asleep, I suffer from nocturnal seizures.

My 8 year old sister annoys me on a daily basis but are truly the bes of friends as she is the one, who in my moment, is there for me and rescue’s me in my moment of doubt.

Mummy and Daddy tell me I have super human powers and the pink medicine I take in the morning and evening, protects them.

One day I will not need to take this yummy pink stuff anymore, but hope that other little storm troopers out there like me, look for the positive thinks in life.

The thing about being BRAVE is it doesn’t come with the absence of fear and hurt. Bravery is the ability to look fear in the face and say move aside, you are in the way.
