“My Self”, by Isaac Nyarko


My name is Isaac Nyarko, I am a boy of 13 years old. I am in J.H.S one. I am dark in complexion. I come from Ghana in the Ashanti religion [region] in a town named “Asokorimenpon” but I stay at Adullam orphange, with a white lady named Louisa Timothy.

I am a short boy with a round head, with a point nose, two eyes, one mouth and two ears. The game I like best is football, playing cards, volleyball, and I dislike Golfball.

I want to tell you how I came to adullam orphange. I came to Adullam in 2001 when 2 years of age. My mother was a cripple when I was born. My father run away when I was 1 years old and when he run away my mother was very poor and no money to buy food to eat.

So one day I and my mother were going to beg for money so we saw a man. The man told my mother that he can help me so that my mother will work and get money to eat. So the man came to us one day and brite [brought] me to the white lady. At that time I was having one brother who was 21 month and the white woman took care of him and me and up to when he was 6 years old and you will bless mum Louisa Timothy and forgave his trespasses. And I want to become a Doctor or a pastor if future.
