Greetings everyone! First off, let me share the meaning of the word "Mabuhay". Mabuhay is a Tagalog (Official/ National Philippine language) word meaning "greetings". It is a very polite way to greet everyone in general in a more traditional Filipino way. I was born and raised in the Philippines and have always shown interest in writing since I was in 6th Grade. I'm very fortunate that English is our second language and in our school, all subjects are taught in English. Nevertheless, I find it very challenging to write in English. I couldn't say I'm THAT fluent in English especially with regards to having extensive knowledge and use of vocabularies I don't often use in my everyday conversation. On top of that, I stumble upon the right choice of words to better describe a scene. Joining this forum gives me the hope that I would be able to find assistance and guidance to aspiring writers like me.
