Glen McMillan Fix it man

I am a fix-it man, firstly I fell from my pushbike in my own street aged 10.
I spent 4 years in the hospital getting fixed.

I had to learn firstly to breathe then walk and talk, I completed all 3 missions.

At age 14 I had lost 4 years schooling however, I was reading doctors books from age 10 and living in a hospital surrounded by adults.

Discharged from the hospital at 14 I was sent to a primary school for crippled children.

Soon after I underwent academic tests I had UE level reading maths science and biology. I had come out of hospital gifted.

I left school at 16 and went into an industrial wireman apprenticeship

I then qualified as an appliance serviceman then more training I became a TV video servicemen.
