I Am Not A Ghanaian?
From my experiences and chats with my friends and fellow naturals, I've noticed four main assumptions about naturals in Ghana. To be natural means:
- You are a Foreigner
- You are Poor
- You are Religious or
- You are Uneducated
I inquired as to why he had that notion and the response was because of my hair! He answered,"you have the appearance of a Jamaican woman or Black American lady". I couldn't stop laughing. I am 100% Ghanaian from the central region of GH. He nodded but you could sense he was not convinced.
Have you ladies had such encounters before?
