A Glimpse // The Journey.
What’s up All. My names David Andoh. I’m from Montreal, Quebec, by way of Ghana west Africa.
My parents were born in Ghana.
No, I don’t speak French.
My family moved to the United States when I was super young. Gaithersburg, Maryland is where we went first. At this point it was my parents - Charles and Elizabeth - and my older brother Enoch. We hung out in Maryland for a while before moving to Cottonwood, Arizona. This city was 13 sq. miles in total.
A few years later, we made the trip up to Tucson, Arizona. We lived here for a few years. One day, at the start of seventh grade, I got pulled out of class via the loud speaker and was told to report to the principal’s office with all of my belongings.
I was being pulled out of school by my dad. Without explanation, we drove home. In my driveway was U-Haul truck – fueled and loaded.
About an hour later we started the trip up to San Jose California. I didn’t get to say goodbye to any friends, they were still at school.
I couldn’t tell you how long that drive was.
I did seventh and eighth grade at Herman intermediate school in San Jose, California. Freshman year of high school at ArchBishop Mitty Highschool (where Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon went // I grew up with the kid). Sophomore year, I got in some trouble and transferred to the local public school. ‘08 hit right before Christmas and I was no longer living with my parents. Junior year I spent with Houston Rockets point guard Isaiah Taylor in Berkeley, California at St. Mary’s College High school. Senior year, my folks went back up to Canada, and I went to IMG Academies in Bradenton, Florida. Look it up.
