”I love playing computer games. One of my favorite games is called “Combat Zombies”. I once discussed with my friend whether Zombies are real or not. He said that there are Zombies in the United States but I didn’t believe him. Still it made me a bit afraid of going to the toilet by myself at night because you never know. That is why I want to become a super hero so I don’t have to be afraid anymore. I want to be a super hero with golden bracelets, like Wonder Woman. I would end the fighting in Syria and then I would go back and kiss everything, really everything, also the bananas and the watermelons.”

Ayham, 8 years old, from Syria (Vienna, Austria)
