In our ‘Sporting Stars of Tomorrow’ column, we focus on rising stars from the various footballing teams around Laudium and Erasmia. So, let’s get down to the business at hand and find out more about this week’s sporting duo, a interview become, the more mature their ambitions seem to be and we know that this is a natural progression. We have a case in point this week with the two Al-Asr learners we feature, who are passionate about the game of soccer, yet are looking at the various options before them… and so want to pursue other goals like becoming a Cryptocurrency millionaire and a zoologist, respectively. Well guys, as the saying goes, ‘we are nothing without our dreams.’ We wish you both very bright futures ahead, footballing and otherwise. All the best!
