I was just Eleven years old (11) when I entered secondary school & Both Girls & Boys Wouldn't Let Me Be.
A group of Girls After Having A meeting ABOUT COCO, finally sent their executive branch to Expose me on the subject matter.
Collette, They called; We have concluded and we want to know why you don't have BREAST!
Is it because you are tying your breast so you look like you don't have BOBI? ( Boobs )
They were Approximately twelve girls ...This Took Place Inside The Market...
They Listed my Various Offenses as Follows
1: You don't have breast and it seems like you are Tying it to stop it from growing.
2: You said you don't know how to Boil Rice.
3: You Lied that you are a 'Soft' Pikin and cannot do manuals( Clearing Grass Specifically)
4: You say Your Father is rich and travels to Douala every week.
5. Do you like ( A boys name I can't bring him into this ) or not? You are pretending.
6: You think you are the most beautiful girl in our class or what?
7: Are you even a virgin sef?
8: You say you have different uniforms for the different days of the week.
... You must answer all of this today ...
I was 11 ... really didn't understand my crimes BUT I was Tough So I handled Them Very Well.
Just Thinking & Thanking God for Boobs today and for Letting me Grow Up as a person finally.
PS; Can you recount some of the craziest incidents you experienced in school growing up as a child in your teenage ages?
Thanks so much for being here and Making this work so far.
