“I learnt this from both my parents but my dad spoke it more fluently. He told me never to beg nor receive things from strangers and if they insisted on giving me I should tell them that I don't need it. He also taught me to be cautious of my surroundings because whenever I go to his house I play with my friends outdoors and because I have sickle cell he taught me to be more cautious of my surroundings. I may fall and get bruises and that is why he said I should be careful. Most importantly, he taught me how to be successful in school. He said I should never follow bad company and I should do my best regardless of the outcome”

“When my training wheels couldn't hold me up anymore my father took them off and I had to learn to ride all by myself. My father kept on teaching me and teaching me and teaching me and after a few falls, I finally learned how to do it. And because of my father, I can ride extremely fast, even in one little spot”.
