My parents put me in boarding school. I could barely speak English and I couldn’t read or write English. At 10 or 11 it’s quite easy to learn to speak another language but it’s not easy to read or write, so I started to become good at sports because I wasn’t good at school. I ended up in a sports college around 17, 18…
