” I did my schooling in Aix-en-Provence where I grew up. I obtained an Economic and Social Baccalaureate with a sports-study course. (I joined the professional water polo team of Aix-en-Provence at the age of 17 ). I then did a first year of economics and management in the academy of Aix-Marseille. I didn’t like it and couldn’t reconcile the two, introduces Tom as a preamble.
He joined the Savoie region, and the club of Aix-les-Bains in the second division. While continuing his training at CESNI as part of his Bachelor 3, which was specially designed for the occasion.
