In my last post I mentioned that I struggled academically during my earlier years at school.
I was at an English private boarding school from age 8 to 12. Not a fun place to be, particularly if you’re shy and have zero self-confidence.
At that particular school, after the first couple of years, they divided everyone between three academic streams.
At the very top was the scholarship stream, followed by an academically competent stream, and at the bottom was the “don’t even bother to try harder” stream.
I was in that last stream.
