I was serving people as a house help. So that was how I grew up. Living with different kinds of people formed a very important part of my life because I experienced different things at different levels.
Some of the people I stayed with were very good to me. They took me in as their own daughter. There was no feeling like an outcast. And there were others who made me feel rejected and less human.
“I lived with a woman in a compound house, helping her with chores. She already had a maid, so I was the assistant maid. One day, after doing all the maid’s chores, she refused to give me food to eat. When our mam’s baby pooped in its diaper, she took off the soiled diaper and said I should eat the feces before she gave me food. I was so hungry that I ate the baby’s feces. I have never shared this because I feel it’s embarrassing.
