Many psychologists and experts accredit much of what happens to us during our youth as life forming events that in some way shape out skills and characters in the future. In many ways, it is difficult to argue against this. We see the way we were treated the upbringing we had as being key markers that develop certain interests and opinions in us, and how we utilize them and overcome the hurdles put in our way can determine the success we go on be in our lives. For Dr. Maurice Roussety, this is certainly the case. He had a difficult and different upbringing, incomparable to most, and in doing so learned a lot about who he was and what he could become.

Maurice Roussety recalls that he was 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 poor 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.

Maurice Roussety was 13 when his mum made the courageous move to Australia. He attended Chandler High school, a small public school in Noble Park, and 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 he often got from his class mates and teachers alike. In those earlier days, migrants like him were few and far between, at least at Chandler High. Overcoming these early childhood difficulties helped Maurice cultivate the determination to become the man he is today.
