Let me tell you something about David, something that can inspire you and make you to get up from the sofa you are sitting on right now.
David, later only as âDâ , was born to a drug addict American woman and a Canadian dad working as a sailor in California. When things went too bad and worse, his father moved him and his sister back to Canada, living together on a boat in Vancouver. His father didnât let him finish the high school and took âDâ for a journey around the U.S. to buy a ship there, get repaired it and to take up to North. âDâ started working very young in a marine and out of that also trading âa bitâ with drugs.
When he got arrested, as an youth, he had to spend few months in a rehabilitation centre for drug addicts. Once âDâ got back, continued working in a sailing industry and bought his own boat to live on. Now, there are no more drugs in his life (note: weed not considered as a drug in Van) and between working and sailing, he does homeworks and reads books of grades 6 and 7. He decided to finish the high school by his own in a programme for adult students.
ThatÂ´s about the story connected with educationâ¦.still complaining about your life and exam you have tomorrow?
