At the end of primary school, the inquisitive youngster was approaching his teenage years somewhat sooner than planned. He liked to spend time with those who were older than he was. He was an extrovert who enjoyed meeting and getting to know new individuals.
The primary reason that motivated him to be an extrovert was the idea of how difficult it would be to leave school. Alfie, like many other kids who live in the ‘future hope’ of a brighter future, wished for a bright tomorrow. He wanted to feel as though he were growing up for the first time. High school was like a house of dreams for Alfie.
