Anthony Colette recalls : “My schoolmates mock, treat me nerd, I mishandle”. Suddenly, the schoolboy will not dare to leave the classroom. “I no longer go out in recess, as I am afraid to face the jeers” he confessed, indicating to live a deep malaise all day because of her harassers : “I get up every morning with butterflies in my stomach and every night I go home crying”.
His father then gives him the idea to make boxing more precisely, to “regain confidence” in him and not be afraid of those who tortures your. And it works. “I can stand up to my tormentors. As of the month, I’m gaining in popularity,” he said, “The next year, I’m even friends with those who once I mocked”. A 14-year-old Anthony Colette goes to another combat sport : krav-maga.
“I am treated of fag”
He then tries to dance next to a classmate in a course of rock’n’roll. But it is 16 years old, when he discovers Dancing with the stars on television (the show is broadcast in France from 2011 on tF1) that Anthony Colette understands that he wants to dance. “I begin with the b. a.-ba. I’m heading, I’m making progress. My persistence pays” has he entrusted to you.
The student will then again be harassed at school : “once again, I wipe ridicule. I am treated of queer, I was told that the dance was reserved for girls, I’m too old to start”. But the dance partner of actress Elsa Esnoult in this season of Dancing with the stars 10 continues in spite of the criticisms and prove to its critics that it had reason to start.
