First of all, I am 100 % Thai ( mixed with Chinese and Indian blood) I am from Bangkok, Thailand but now being Manchester based fashion blogger in Manchester, United Kingdom. English is not my first language but I am not afraid to speak it out loud whether my grammar is shit sometimes.
Some people afraid to write their blogs because English is not their first language. They feel embarrassed when things go wrong such as error grammar or vocabularies. Some of them feel as if they don't feel confident enough to start the blogs because they feel fear of being looked down on. However, I really believe that if we think we can do it, then we will.
Even though, I can speak and write English, it doesn't mean that my skills are flawless. I keep making mistakes all the time when writing academic papers or official articles. There are three languages in my head, so sometimes it is difficult for my brain to function properly. Sometimes, I think in English, but sometimes I also think in Thai. It always happens to us when we have to face the fact that we all have the errors in ourselves because nobody is perfect. Whenever, I am told "your grammar is wrong" I say WTF but still feel appreciate since I can learn from that mistake and improve my writing for the better performance.
When I was young, obviously I felt frustrated when people pointed out my mistakes. However, I think whatever people say can be a great lesson to develop ourselves right? Hence, don't be afraid to write and start doing something that makes you feel happy. You know, it is good to embrace your language and speak it with confident.
No need to be shy because we all have flaws yet we still have an opportunity to learn from those faults and become better and better.
