His manager is his Mum and he doesn’t have to pay her. He’s so good that talent agencies want to sing him up, but his Mum won’t let them because he’s 12 years old.
Some understandings I now have are, if you try hard enough and you get into something quickly, you can aspire to be person you wanted to be. I also understand why all Sam Idols are magicians, this is because they do the same thing he does that he loves so much. A question I still have is, How many magic tricks does Sam know?

I now understand how serious the war is because of how refugees there are in this single camp. One question I still have, Why don’t we ask some of these refugees if they want to come to Australia?
