I'll Tell My Story

His father, a policeman, was a strict disciplinarian who never tolerated lies from his children. This fear of the consequences of lying made the young boy confess to his father one day when he played truant and was found out by his dad.

After junior high, Halima decided she would not go to senior high school because she wanted to learn how to sew. She was very beautiful and for someone with only a basic school certificate, she was too intelligent for her own good. She spoke and wrote English better than so many degree holders.

People admired her for not only that but also her humble nature and kind heart. And this was the lady I had a crush on. 

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.

At a very young age, he was skillful in making simple household furniture such as tables, chairs and stools because he received practical lessons from his father who was a master carpenter.

Every day after school and mostly during vacations while he was in the primary and middle school, he would go to his father’s workshop and assist him and his apprentices.
