- He has begged for food and money in the streets
He grew up in Porto Alegre in a neighbourhood called Restinga. When he turned three, the family extended to four with the birth of his younger brother.

He often begged for money and food in the streets.
- He was rejected several times
Until he was 18, he played “varzea” tournaments in Brazil.
It was quite tough for him and his family because he was spending more than expected money.
His goal was to be taken by the academy so that he could get a monthly allowance that would help his family at home, but he never had a chance at any academy.
He was rejected several times.
He also tried for International and Gremio but got rejected, after which he moved to Santa Catarina and began playing youth football for Imbituba Futebol Clube.
He was later scouted by Avai and began his career with Avai’s under 20 teams.
- Raphinha as a person is very emotional and very shy

According to him, he is always looking to do his best, looking to win, and when that doesn’t happen as expected, it makes him frustrated.

- He always dreamt of high
Growing up playing in the varzea pitches and the tournaments, he always dreamt of playing in the best leagues in the world and the national team.

The family is grateful that his dad being a musician, was a source of income that provided food on the table and bus fare to get to the training.
- His family is his main rocks
The main rocks in his life that have motivated him throughout his life to rise are his family then his agent.
He says his wife is also his rock now, who is very supportive of his career and provides him with a lot of strength to continue to work hard.
It’s always been and always will be his family first, who, according to him, is the foundation to be able to keep up the hard work, knowing that his family is always there to support him no matter what.
