The view, moreover, axiom that sport is more than just physical activity or something like that involves me from head to toe in this industry and becomes an inseparable part of my life. I'm a specialist in international affairs, with a concentration in the middle east. In my opinion, that knowledge of orientalism helps me to orientate well in sports also.
