    hy there, m neil, 28 from philippines. I am so proud to say that aside from the education that I've attained, I'm very exceptional when it comes to arranging/decorating fresh and artificial flowers. I don't have any trainings at all, I started decorating flowers when I was 10 because I'm always fascinated with flowers and its vibrant colors and I imagine things in order to create a very extraordinary arrangement. You know, if it is really your passion, the outcome of your work is outstanding but sad to say I'm still searching for the right, credible employer who can help me and hopefully soon, can assist me on this green card thing. I really love to decorate. I'm exposed already in this community, hope I can work and contribute using my skill to a bigger community ( in the U.S. ) where there is greater opportunity. Just email me [email protected] Thank You so much and God Bless.... :)
