Learnt how to play the recorder. Stayed in the same school for 10 years. Choose to study sciences instead of letters. Managed to pass 11 subjects in my final year of school. 11 final year Spanish subjects = 11 English A-Level equivalent. These subjects included Maths, Philosophy and Technical Drawing. Decided to take Spanish A-Level. Got an A* in said A-Level. Thanked parents for sending me to strict Spanish school. Thanked parents for pushing me to do my best. Joined the local sailing school.
