This week’s nerd it forward spotlight is being shone on part-time stormtrooper and just all around nice guy, John Boyega. The photo and caption posted on his Instagram really says it all.
John recently paid a visit to The Royal London Hospital and put smiles on the faces of some very special kids. I mean who wouldn’t want the chance to be in a lightsaber duel with Finn?
This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper. ❤️❤️❤️
The cuteness level is off the charts. The fact that Daniel wanted to share his Star Wars experience with his friends makes it all the more heartwarming. We raise our lightsabers to you, Daniel for your generosity and courage.
Nerd it forward,
