My Name is Adebiyi by Najma Ahmed
Read by Kenneth Omole

“The truth is, even when they aren’t driving their trucks up, snooping around my stall laughing, just the thought of them chokes me. I hate seeing them and feeling powerless, standing with my head down so I don’t catch their eye. It’s why I’m here.”
