Nakilala ko si Mina sa pamamagitan ng aking kapatid na si Christine. Nung nagsusulat ako ng una kong kwento na nalimbag noong nakaraang taon, si Christine ang nagpakilala sa akin sa mga kwento ni Mina V. Esguerra. Nung nabasa ko ang Fairy Tale Fail, Napagdesisyonan ko na idagdag sya sa Facebook.
(I met Mina through my sister, Christine. When I was writing my first published story, Christine introduced me with all the works of Mina V. Esguerra. When I read Fairy Tale Fail, I have decided to add her on Facebook.)
Nakita ko na nagsasanay sya ng mga bagong manunulat kaya sumali ako sa buqoYA. Duon nagsimula ang matagal naming pagkakaibigan ni Mina. Ako na yata ang isa sa mga suki ni Mina sa mga worshops nya.
(I saw that she was also training aspiring writers, that’s why I joined #buqoYA. That started our 2-year friendship. I was a constant on almost all of her writing workshops.)
Bilang “Fairy GodMother of Romance Writers”, nagpapasalamat ako kay Mina V. Esguerra dahil suportado nya lahat ng mga anak nya sa pagsusulat. 🙂
(Being the “Fairy GodMother of Romance Writers”, I want to thank Mina V. Esguerra for her support on her literary children.)
Salamat Mina and Mahal ka namin! 🙂
(Thank you Mina and We love you!)
