Writing

Last week I watched a BBVA bank video, that they made. They make those kind of videos with people who have something interesting to say and you can take these as life examples. That video was very emotional for me.
A man talked about his life. He had many problems when he was young because he was stutterer. Everybody at school were bulling him. In his home they were poor, for example they hadn’t TV, these situations made him like read many books, because when he was reading books, he was feel free. As in the neighborhood or in the school there aren’t was a library, so he often went to a small second-hand book store and he wanted to read all books that they had there, it was for he like a treasure. When he read books didn’t stutter, that saved his life. He wanted to be writer but his father didn´t want and sometimes his teacher was telling him “You better look for a job because you are useless and you will be it your whole life.” He found in those moments, the way and the power to fight to be someone.
Finally, he was a writer, he overcame his problem of stutterer, and he said “the most important in your life is what you have in your heart and in your head. Is your life, if you are sure of something, do it, if believe in something go for it. The life is short, do what do you like”.
