My Nick and My Real Name
My name is Raleek. I hate my name, because people make it sound like a British name.
I tell everybody to call me Rah or Rahh Rahh. I tell them, "Don't call me Raleek because people make it sound British and I'm not British!"
When I was five years-old, I told my mom and my dad, I wanted my first name to be Andre and last name to be Solomon.
When I was getting older, I kept on asking them to change my name, but they were like, "This is too much!" They got mad.
Also, I never wanted to go to school because they kept on calling by my last name. For example, "The boy Wynn always wins!"
I knew they were going to say that, but I just thought, "If they say that, I'll just keep my comments to myself."
When I started getting even older, I moved and went to a different school. I got used to people by calling me my government name. It was a big issue, but sometimes I told them to call me Rah or Rahh Rahh.
They listened, but I thought, "If they would call me my full government, it would be cool because if I get somewhere in life, they are going to have to call me by my full government name."
