How you learned not to be yourself

How true, more so where I come from in Africa. I actually believed I had no talent whatsoever until I ended up studying abroad and my teachers helped me discover so many hidden talents I was blown away. For instance, I knew I loved maths but I didn’t know that I was also analytical and could leverage that to make decisions much faster. Most shocking, is that I turned out to be a sprinter — this was not apparent because I had a “funny” gait and my posture had always been so wrong.

The change in the education system will not come overnight but it’s happening across the world from Brazil where I actually spent some time in Rocinha helping develop the small schools in the neighborhood to Tanzania where they teach engineering in Kiswahili (the vocabulary is very limited), systems are transforming.
