English isn’t my first language but having been born from a different generation, I grew up with it. I learned it in school and at home. English is my second language. I’ve always read American authors. I watched American movies and even as I write this today, I am listening to American music.

What Does Chosen for Further Distribution Mean on Medium?

Medium curation is something but not everything. When I was starting my journey as a writer on Medium, money wasn’t my prime motivation. It is to write, improve my writing, and find my writer’s voice.
