Afia Drah, APR, MCIPR said:
I can relate. My uncle told me I was the ugliest kid in the family and if he had to choose someone for rituals he will choose me.
Samuel Y. Frimpong commented:
Rachel Bamfo your experience reminds me of my older cousin (she can actually birth me) who told me "you're a hopeless boy and nothing will come out of you". That was when I was in JSS 1. When I take stock today, I only laugh and tell myself she didn't have a good understanding of the English language. Maybe she meant to tell me I was a stubborn kid. Lol.

I am constantly amazed by how people think it's ok to belittle someone. Happy you overcame that person's view of you. God always has a plan for each of us.
