My mother was invited to be the commencement speaker of my high school alma mater. I was not able to attend, but while she was delivering her speech, both of my sisters were messaging me how impressed they were. When we were much younger, my parents’ tutoring assignments were Math for Papa and English for Mama. We (Patty, Jill and I) have always known that Ma writes well and was partly responsible in helping us discover/develop our own writing style, but we are in agreement in saying that it is only now that we realize how underrated her charisma is when speaking in public (hehehe we love you, mujay!).
I may be a bit biased, but I personally think it is because she is such a genuine person (perhaps the most genuine person I know). I hope you’ll enjoy reading this as much as I did. :)
