Our excitement level is enhanced whenever we hear someone is sharing what has been vicariously or actually experienced. From all walks of life, different life testimonies became the objects of sadness as well as laughters. Some are comedians, others are dramatic. Regardless of their deliveries, we definitely learned from them. And, that’s the most important of all. Yet, there are two-sided presentation and impact: We idolize or antagonize.
To fairly welcome the 2018, the Alberta Filipino Journal Team has conceptualized a new method of bringing people at the frontline. As you can see, this Journal has been serving as your medium of communication, catering different sources of informations from prolific writers and columnists. Their imaginations and fields of expertise know no boundaries.
In the previous years, our team had spoken to you, taught you a lesson, brought you some ideas how to deal with life squarely and with equanimity, made you aware about our few kababayans successes and triumphs through the Alberta Filipino Journal, free of charge.
This year, a touch of innovations will be presented to you. Where you are the actors and actresses on stage and we are your viewers or audience.. The AFJ, through the help of the Philippine Media Association of Alberta (in the making), will be inviting and encouraging each one of you to join in our conversational program entitled: A FORUM THROUGH A COLUMN.
Your editor-in-chief is very much willing to welcome your stories or Life’s Tales without any prejudices. Just write at least 300 words to tell your stories. Be direct to the point. You may use bulleted or numbered informations about yourself. Expose your life’s ups and downs, the lessons you’ve learned, and the pieces of advice to yourself in preparation for your future plans.
He who participates in this program will automatically be qualified to compete with other story-senders. Awarding Night will be held in one of the prestigious Filipino Restaurants here in Edmonton (a sponsor); First, Second, And Third prices will be awarded to the Winning Stories to be given by the generous sponsors.
So, what are you waiting for our dear kababayans. You may start sending your stories now to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once selected, that will be published in our next ALBERTA FILIPINO JOURNAL ISSUES.
