Suzuki Musashi was born to a Jamaican father and Japanese mother. As a child in Japan, people made discriminatory comments because of his skin color. Wanting the hurtful words to stop, he chose to bottle up his emotions of anger and sadness. A talent for soccer set him on a road leading to Japan's national team. But that success exposed him once again to attack. Suzuki opens up about his painful childhood, how soccer saved him and his perspective now as a seasoned soccer pro.
