I am from an beginning
Born, five weeks before my due date
Predicted to have problems, growing and adapting to lifeĀ 

I am from a small Village
Surrounded by family, living in peace and, working 4 hours a day, 3 days a week while going to school and playing sports

I am from an African background,
With family from Ghana west Africa
Where my father was introduced to life

I am from a family,
Where celebrating Christmas Eve with white elephant gifts, a tradition
Where being together during Good Friday is special

I am from an athletic life,
By competing in National volleyball tournaments
Always looking to be the best I can

I am from a shoulder injury,
Working hard at physical therapy lifting weights and stretching, pushing to come back with more strength than ever.
