Goodluck is a lovely lively 9-year-old little boy. He has various health issues and has a visual impairment that impacts his zest for learning and enjoying activities like bike riding and playing physical activities. Goodluck uses a hearing aid that enhances his hearing skills and minimises background noises. He mainly utilises this apparatus in the school setting. Goodluck is learning to communicate verbally again and has made great progress with this lately.

Goodluck has an older brother who is extremely poorly and mostly refined to his bed, but he often spends time with him chatting. Goodluck is a “Sonic the Hedgehog” fanatic and loves all things “Sonic” whether it is on his games console or scanning YouTube for videos. He is a chatty little boy with a great sense of humour. He loves music and is often heard singing one of his favourite songs by Bob Marley – “Every little Thing”. Goodluck is quite an independent little boy who loves to run about and ride his bicycle giving the opportunity.

Goodluck’s family have a Christian Faith that is very important to them. They attend church regular and engage in prayer and fasting routines frequently. It is very important to the family that this is acknowledged and respected.
