No Longer “A Go Wreck”: Massah’s Story

Massah explains that without education the Krio phrase “a go wreck” (meaning “becoming a wreck”) would have described her life. “I wouldn’t go further.” Massah says. “I would just stay there, ‘a go wreck’ there.”


Massah was just ten months old when rebels attacked her village in Sierra Leone. Her mother was ill when they fled into the bush, and she died shortly after.
