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.

I'll Tell My Story

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.

The chorus of one of Ghana's hip life songs which goes, "there is a new girl in town," sums up the story of my near lost experience in China's Yiwu Commodity Trading Centre.

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.
