Here, we’ll take a look at the great man’s early life, and how it helped defies him and become the man he is today.
Maurice Roussety was always entrepreneurial, creative, building, and fixing things. From the age of nine, he was making sling shots out of left over strips of elastic bands from his mum’s sewing, carved small sailing boats out of wood and dust pans with long handles from old oil cans and sold them to the local shopkeeper and school friends for a few rupees that went a long way towards school books… but never enough to buy that elusive pair of soccer books that was always on his Christmas list. Earlier childhood was also full of hospital visits for the sickly Maurice. Ranging from severe asthma attacks to diphtheria to a gangrenous infection to being given hours to live after swallowing a two-cent coin, he became well known at the local hospital. However, his determination to overcome his illnesses always impressed doctors and nurses.
Maurice was 13 when his mum made the courageous move to Australia. he attended Chandler High school, a small public school in Noble Park. He had little English, spoke with a very strong French accent, played soccer (rather than Aussie rules) dark in complexion, dressed differently and was taller than the average 13 year-old. What a freak …. was the look I got from his class mates and teachers alike? In those earlier days, migrants like Maurice were few and far between, at least at Chandler High. He was always different at school and was never really accepted. Sometimes he felt like ending it all. However, he worked hard to overcome his hurdles, and was able to craft himself into the fine individual he is today.
