Her name is Angelina Nyamekye Amoa. Growing up, she had everything handed to her. born in Koforidua, raised in Accra, her story was similar to just a few Ghanaians, the elites. Her parents traveled to South Africa, London, Dubai, and the united states so often, she barely even knew them. She really didnt think she was missing anything, because she had grandparents that were commited to her and her older sister, they basically got EVERYTHING they wanted and asked for…. her sister was the friendly one, she had so many friends, not only because she had grandparents who were wealthy and gave out money and gifts to her friends, but she was genuine, caring, funny, and the mothering type as well. She knew all the dances and music in the world…from Michael Jacksons “thriller”, to mary mary’s “shackles” and kojo antwi “dadie anoma”  her sister definitely wasnt as shy as she was. Her sister loved people… her on the other hand, kept to her self…she had a few close friends, she wasnt really into spending the money that was handed to her, she kept the money and sometimes returned it to her grandparents for she didnt know what to do with it… sometimes she played with her sister and her friends, other days she just slept in for a long time. school was her thing though, she did well in class, the teachers adored her…maybe you can call her teachers pet but she was never first in her class, she came in 2nd, 3rd or 4th, but never first. that never bothered her though, she loved school. Her teachers probably looked forward to “our day” more than she did…because her grandmother or her aunt will make the best dishes for both her and her sister to give to their teachers. they will have gifts, money, groceries etc….for their teachers. with how teachers are treated in many parts of Afrika, low salary and little respect, it is only right that they appreciated her and her sister and most of the time favored them above their classmates…. “our day” marked the end of each school year… (to be continued…)
