But he is not stable, then his ex-girlfriend Katherine comes and makes him stable and makes him ready to appear in the hearing with senator Brewster.
The day I became a doctor
Ahmad: my goosebump moment is about my childhood ambition of becoming a doctor coming true. I wanted to help humanity with my services and my family wanted to see me as a doctor as well. To achieve this, I struggled very hard. I had a part-time job to pay my study expenses. Then the day came that I became a doctor and I got my doctorate. The day was such a blessing, it was a wonderful moment. My mother was weeping with happiness.

Helping other people
Imran: my goosebump moment is about helping an old lady. I was going to buy groceries and I saw an old lady try to cross the road with a heavy bag of food. Suddenly she fell down and her food was damaged. I ran towards her to help her and to buy some food for her with my grocery money. I went back home with empty hands, but I was so happy for helping her. This was the best goosebump moment of my life.
First time to a movie night
Juliano: my goosebump moment was when I went to a movie night for the first time. In Brazil, we call it “Noitão”. It is a night in a movie theater, watching three movies in sequence. Usually, they are old movies that we normally cannot see on the big screen of the movie theater. It was so great for me and so emotional, because I love cinema so much!
Parents expressing love
Gloria: my goosebump moment was the first and only time my mum told me in plain language that she missed me. It was so touching because it is hard to get our parents of the older generation to express their emotions. I had returned home from school after a long time and my mum hugged me tight and told me that she missed me. It was so touching.
The movie “Sweet Girl”
Odeh: my goosebump moment was the movie titled “Sweet Girl”, about a man who lost his wife to cancer after being offered hope of an affordable drug made by pharmaceutical giant Bioprime, but they halt the drug’s release. The husband is killed by Bioprime when he investigates. His daughter, Rachel, takes vengeance on Bioprime as she lives a life without parents. This gave me goosebumps because I know what it means to live a life without a father or a mother.
Every decision matters
Precious: my goosebump moment is from a movie titled “The Tomorrow War”. A war was predicted to happen in 2050 and the lead character was deployed for this war. My goosebump moment came when he realized he could prevent the war from even happening by doing something right then. That told me that you can stop what happens in the future by what you do right now.
The ocean after lockdown
Bella: my goosebump moment is running into the ocean after several months in lockdown. It was an emotional moment being in the water after not having been there for so long. It is my favourite place in the world. Just being amongst the waves after being stuck in my house for ages. It’s now an emotional memory of coming back, seeing the sea and being embraced by the water. It is really an incredible thing and definitely something that always moves me emotionally and gives me goosebumps.
The movie “Five Feet Apart”
Esther: my goosebump moment certainly is the movie “Five feet apart”. A sick young girl meets an equally sick young boy at the hospital. They fall in love with each other, but sadly had to separate because they had an illness that did not permit them to have any physical contact. The boy was being transferred to another hospital. When he stood at the glass window of the girl’s room, taking in his last sight of her, my emotions hit a climax, and I was literally engulfed in goosebumps.
Movie “A quiet place”
Ariana: my goosebump moment was from a movie titled: “A quiet place”. The movie was centered around a family who must live in silence in order to avoid being killed by a deadly creature who hunts by sound. Evelyn, the wife, and Lee, the husband, were desperately searching for a way to protect their children and also fight back.
Publishing my own book
Gabriel: my goosebump moment was the day my supervisor handed me a book I helped him publish. I edited the book from the first word in the first chapter to the last word in the last chapter. I had no professional knowledge in editing and publishing. But I tried my best to do what I had to do. He was impressed and we published two more books after the first one.
