[00:00:08.03] born in the Philippines so from a young age they taught
[00:00:12.04] Tagalog and English at the same time so
[00:00:16.05] when I went to grade school or like Kindergarten
[00:00:20.06] we had both classes and ... so I think I
[00:00:24.07] learned both languages simultaneously and..
[00:00:28.08] I also remember reading English out of a book
[00:00:32.09] and I was like.. five
