​It’s a Small World After All

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Ryel Walters and, wherever I go, I’m the smallest boy whenever I get there.

I’m five years old. [But I’m a small five, because my mummy says I was a preemie.]

[I was an eight-month baby. My mummy was told it would take two years for me to catch up to other children. But, surprisingly, I was well going in line with all the others in pre-school.]

[I graduated as the top student in my pre-school. So my mummy realised her boy was really doing well.]

I play football in the Savannah. It’s a short walk for me on a Saturday the Savannah. [Because I live right there in Belmont.]

I don’t have a Premiership team I want to play for. Not as yet. Maybe as I get older. [Football started off as just a way of getting me out to socialise with other children but my pre-school coach told my mummy I had some potential in football and basketball.]

I like football more than any other sport. The best part is kicking the ball.
