"I want to be the strongest skier in the world!" This is the dream of Mahamane, a boy who grew up in the Republic of Niger, Africa.
He listened to his teacher, Mr. Eddie from Canada, tell stories about skiing, and he never tires of them, even after listening to them 100 times. In class, when Mr. Eddie asked his students to draw their dreams, Mahamane drew skis and a snow suit.
His friends laughed at him, "Mahamane, this is Africa!", they said. "Africa has no snow!", "Skiing is a sport played in cold countries!"
Mahamane didn't care. He thought of creative ways to learn and practice. He even made his own ski props and slid down from the sand dunes to simulate skiing.
Can Mahamane realize his dreams to become a world-class skiier?
