It is unfortunate that most educational systems expect our children to develop within a fixed timeline. At 16-17, they are expected to be in high school, at 18/19, in college, etc. But the reality is that everyone develops at a different pace. We must not “write-off” those who don’t excel at “milestone” exams and consider them “second class”. If we do, who knows – perhaps we may unwittingly be denying ourselves of talent that could change the world! This example of a turn-around kid may be rare. But it reminds us that everyone requires a different runway for them to take-off in life. Let’s celebrate this!
