My grandfather, Ibrahim Rezek Dukhan, was born in Palestine on December 20, 1946. His father, who worked as a simple farmer always encouraged him to work hard and get high grades in school. My grandfather had 3 brothers and 3 sisters and he was the fourth among them. He went to three different schools in his childhood, Nseirat Elementary School, Nseirat Secondary School and Khaled bin Al Waleed High School. He was a very bright student and always got the first rank, he even graduated from high school at the age of 15. During his childhood, the popular games they played were football and volley ball, for which they usually used simple handmade tools , since they couldn’t afford to buy a real football back then. Being a very witty person even as a child, after he finished first term of grade two and got the first rank, he lied to his father and told him that all high achievers will skip a grade and go directly to the next grade. He made this up in order to be rewarded a penny by his father, but to his astonishment when term 2 started he was really sent to grade 3. This happened two more times in grades 5 and 9 and that was why he .finished high school at the age of 15
