Dear Auntie Betty, I am in junior high school Form Two but my mates and I are not happy in class because one of our teachers is not being fair to us.

His father, a policeman, was a strict disciplinarian who never tolerated lies from his children.

We grew up in the same community but I never mustered the courage to speak to her. Though I was handsome, studying medicine at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and had a little swag, for some reason, I felt I was no match for her, that I did not deserve to be her friend.
