Hi Anosh, PROUD is an adjective. To be proud means to feel happy or satisfied about something like an achievement or reward. E.g. If I finish first place in a race, I might feel proud of myself. However, PROUD also has a very bad meaning as well. When we describe someone as being a proud person it can mean that he thinks very highly of himself. He usually thinks he's the best and that others are wrong or that others are underneath him. Hope this helps:-)
Hello, Anosh! Proud, as an adjective, has the meaning of feeling happy and pleased with an accomplishment or a reward, which is the initial meaning of the word. Whereas as the colleague mentioned the meaning of the word proud can be negative as well. In that case, it means when a person has an excessively high opinion on themselves and their importance. I hope this helps!
