Up to age 11, I was shy and an average kid. Then at age 12 I changed and became more confident and self assured. I made new friends and started expressing myself in an assertive manner. At that stage, I was formulating my plans based on my dream to be recognized on the world's stage. I started working out and focused on eating healthy and looking good.
