Why I write
It has been a month since I first started writing articles and establishing my blog.
I thought long and hard during this period of time, what kind of content I want to put on the web and what messages I want to send out through my words. I know from the bottom of my heart that I still have a long way to go in regards of writing in English. My grammars, choice of words etc probably are not up to a lot of people’s standers. But I really don’t care at this point. Not in the “fuck you” kind of way but I want to be honest of who I am, a foreigner that is still learning to live here in U.S.A. and my English is part of it. English is the third language I speak, and the second kind I can write in. It is not the third because my mother tongue has no real written form. It has been passed down orally from generation to generation.
“One day you will tell your story of how you overcome what you went through and it will be someone else’s survival guide.” - Brené Brown.
The quote basically sums up my motivation.
I am not trying to be an internet guru or a popular blogger, but I have stories to share like many others. I would like my messages go to those who need them and give them supports when they are alone in the dark. It may be only one in hundreds or thousands but I want to try the best I can, even just for that only one.
I am not smart or famous but I am stubborn and resilient. I am a commoner and would easily disappeared into a group of Asian women. But that doesn’t mean my stories are not special and unique. I also firmly believe they are relatable.
My audience could be anyone who are interested in TV/Film industry, trying to find a way in; who are young and passionate trying to find themselves in the lighting world; who are curious about new lighting technologies; who are searching for an ally that has been through what they are facing in lives.
If you agree with my plea and the cause, please help me share my blog, especially to those you think can benefit from it.
