I am a researcher and writer, who is willing and ready to learn, unlearn, and relearn. My skills are upscaled and nourished through regular reading and writing, which I love to call "continual learning". My research and writing skills have earned me chances to publish academic research work with reputable journals and I look forward to publishing more in the near future. By the way, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. I am too detail-oriented, a weakness that became valuable to my writing career, as it turned into a relevant strength. This attribute enhances my reviewing and proofreading abilities, assisting me to...

My work experience includes journalism, corporate communications, editing, and PR communications. These positions have provided me with wide-ranging experience doing the two things I enjoy most: writing and proofreading. Because my work has often been deadline driven, I have proven my ability to maintain accuracy and quality, even when required to work quickly. I am therefore confident that I would prove an asset to any business looking for a high-quality content creator or editor.

The English on the web needs help! I'm on a mission to eradicate ghastly grammar, poor punctuation and tragic tenses. The language you use in your content writing is being judged. The saying is true: It is not WHAT you say but HOW you say it that matters. Let me put your thoughts into words. I can write deliberately or deliciously. Let me edit your material before you publish it! Please - for the sake of preserving our beloved language! I am 60% right brained and 40% left brained. I think this ratio is terrific because I am right-brained enough to be successfully creative and left-brained enough to be organised and punctual. To view...

These past careers have helped hone my creative skills and given me an expert opinion that I can use to make my work better and more helpful. To aid my quest to become a freelance writer I did a Udemy course on content marketing which gave me a knowledge of SEO that helps me optimize my posts while still making them entertaining. I also have a website I set up myself which I use to publish blogs about food, mental health and lifestyle.
