We, Filipino swifties, would really love to meet you or to go to one of your concerts to see you. I know that other Asian swifties and swifties from all over the world also want this. And I know you are doing your best to make this possible.
I‘ve never been to one of your concerts. I missed your first concert in Manila in 2011 because it was too late when i found out. After that, i created a twitter account so i can follow you. When you announced Red Tour Manila, i was so excited because i can finally see you. I saved money for your concert. But the timing was bad. I was at school when tickets were released and it was sold out in two hours so by the time i got home, there was none left. I was so sad I couldn’t believe I missed the chance, again. I was frustrated until the day of your concert. After that, i slowly got over it. And then you announced a new album so i moved on. I enjoyed your music. Then I waited for you to announce a concert here but it never happened. But it was fine and I was still happy for you and for your success because you won many awards for 1989. I just told myself maybe it’s not yet my time so i’ll just wait for your next album and tour. I hope this will be the era when i can finally meet you or at least be at your concert and see you closely.
I am excited for this era because a lot of things happened since you announced your new song and album. I have met very nice people from all over the world and made so much friends on tumblr because of you. I never thought this would happen since i’m a very shy person. But i got along with them and we talk every single day.
Being invited to a secret session to meet in you in your own house, and hang out with you, and listen to your album before it comes out, is one of the greatest thing in the world for a swiftie. One of my friends was invited and she got to meet you. I was so happy for her. But finding out that people were invited but couldn’t go, it’s heart breaking. When you first did a secret session in London, i saw tweet of a Venezuelan swiftie who got invited but she couldn’t go because she had no money. I have a friend on tumblr who is also Venezuelan, and she told me that their country is in a crisis. That is why even if they get invited, they won’t be able to go. But still, they were happy because they knew that you also notice them and it was actually possible for them to get an invitation. Even if their situation is like that, you make them feel better. You make them happy.
Today, I saw that two Filipino swifties were invited by Taylor Nation to go to LA for the Secret Session. Unfortunately, there’s not enough time for them to apply for US Visa and there’s no guarantee they could be granted because it’s really hard for us Filipinos to get a US Visa. It breaks my heart to find out that they really had the chance to meet you in your own house. They are sad about it because they couldn’t go when it would have been the best day of their lives. But i know they are also happy about it because they got an invitation.
I know more people were invited too but were not able to go. But I just hope that these people can get another chance to meet you.
The fact that you care about every swifties in the world, and that you want to meet us too is truly admirable. And we love you more because of that. I know that you love us too. You may not know every single one of us by our twitter/instagram names, tumblr url, or real names, you may not have been able to notice us, or like our post, or follow us, but i really do believe that you love us no matter who we are or what we are or where we are. I will never doubt your love for us, Taylor.
I will always be on your side, Taylor. I will always love and support you whether i meet you or not. I just want to thank you for doing this thing. For making us happy, for teaching us things, for helping us in some way even if you don’t know it. You have changed a lot of lives including mine. You taught me to love myself, become a better person, and be kind to people. And i love you and i thank you for everything. I hope i will be able to tell you that in person. @taylorswift 💕
