Finding yourself in sport

Six months ago, just another 20-year-old sat in a restaurant, wondering how he was going to carve out his place in the world. As he spoke, his eyes filled with tears.

Born in a location outside a small rural town, he was raised by his adored grandparents. His parents separated when he was small and ever since he can remember, his mother has lived in a faraway city, where she works as a maid for a wealthy family, looking after other people’s children instead of her own. He sees her twice every year, but they speak on the phone every second day without fail. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
