HARDPEN

Seosan-si, South Korea

Teacher-Writer

Hardpen is my nom de plume.

My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya.

Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?"

I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories, and essays, when I do research, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. I don't write for cash incentives, "likes," and "praises." I would be thankful if I'll have them but the happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my real rewards.

Is teaching difficult? No!

When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy.

Proud to be me!

Proud to be a FILIPINO!

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
