and be introduced to opportunities that I may not have been exposed to elsewhere.
For my entire school career, I felt like I was constantly nurtured under the loving care of my teachers.
It was the encouragement of my English teachers that fueled my love for the language and ultimately lead me to explore the wondrous world of words. My very first piece that was published in an anthology of verse was a poem I wrote in Std 2 called "My Secret Garden". This was the beginning and I am proud to say that I have had my writing published in local and international publications - enforcing my belief that I can spread whatever message I wish through the written word. My love for English also led to my career choice in teaching English to foreigners.
