Get out Grebo!” (“Grebo” is an appellation often used offensively against people of Maghreb origins)
From there I started to practice another sport and despite my disability I gave excellent results. I took all my anger and I turned it into a skill and I succeeded. I became a one-handed volleyball player. My teammates did not believe I could play well but I did.
