Onua is a very special woman. She has outlived two husbands. She has raised seven daughters. She is a smart business woman, selling flour and other baking necessities, and is incredibly respected in the community.

Her real name is Evelyn. She has very little English; I have very little Ga. When I lived in her family compound, we talked in sign language, with some translation. She called me Onua, Sister, and that is what I call her.

I am proud to be her sister.
