So you want to know a bit about me? That’s what brought you to this page, right?
When I was a Kid…
I was born in Sydney, Australia. I grew up in the South West Metropolitan area of Sydney. I was elected School Captain of my Primary School in 6th Grade. I wore a cool, blue badge with the school emblem on it. I had to arrive at school early morning, because I was afforded the ceremonial job – raising the Australian flag on its tall pole in the middle of the school playground.
I had only been at the school for two years because my parents had bought a new house in another suburb. So some students may have been upset with me, particularly if they were busy building a reputation for the last six years at the same school. I hope I didn’t hurt anyone’s feelings.
When I was a Bigger Kid…
During orientation day for 7th grade (1st year of high school), Mr Nelson, the School Principal, chose me to model the spanking brand new school blazer (green and gold school jacket) and headcap. I was honoured. But I faced a series of insults from other students in my year. Some nasty boys seemed to enjoy their recess and lunchtimes (my recess and lunchtime as well!) pulling my hat off my head and throwing it around the playground. I liked to keep my property clean and in good order. So when they started bending the hard visor part of the hat, I wasn’t too happy.
In 11th grade I decided to learn some practical business skills. I joined Young Achievers Australia, a program designed to partner groups of students with local business to learn how to launch products from start to finish. The group elected me as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
I was also elected Prefect in 12th Grade of High School. I represented my grade in the Student Representative Council.
When I became an Adult…
I’ve got mental block now. I seem to easily remember my early years. Don’t worry, as this blog develops, I’m sure I’ll remember more about me in my recent years!
Thanks for your interest in me and my thoughts.
