When I was at school I was a bit of a rebel. Always getting into trouble. My teacher said “you will never amount to anything”! So imagine my surprise when I was accepted into university. I then proceeded to pass each subject with flying colours.
I remember getting my mid semester grades quite distinctly. Straight distinctions. I thought to myself, “that can’t be right. I’m not that smart. There must be some kind of mistake”. Fast forward a few years and I was heading up the students final year graduation committee.
