    Hi. I am a Creative Writing student who is currently nearing the end of her studies. Throughout the years of my schooling, I have absorbed different disciplines, from rhetoric to semiotics. All are applicable to various fields, but more so in speech, copy, content and script writing. Writing is my passion and the one thing I enjoy the most, along with performing spoken word poetry and debate, but my skills are far-reaching. Recently, I had the opportunity to receive training in transcribing, and it is something I wish to do more of in the future. Overall, I enjoy challenges. Learning new things is what I live for; among other things, of course.

    After gaining working experience in the fields of banking, admin, secretarial (legal) and education I became involved in transcription work 11 years ago. I am highly motivated, methodical, extremely well organized and trustworthy. I have excellent English communication skills, in fact born and raised in Manchester, England, although I now live in South Africa. Being a perfectionist I constantly check and recheck my work for spellings, correct place names, references and such, and can assure you of a high standard of work. I will proofread all my work and only submit work which I consider accurate in spelling, punctuation and grammar. I am an avid reader and crossword fanatic and as such consider my grammatical skills well above average. I am completely at home with any accent and adjust transcription spellings accordingly, ie Australian, British or American. In addition to Upwork I have also completed projects for Appen, Rev and TransperfectDataForce. For Transperfect I did several months of both Transcribing and Quality Assurance work on an AI project and was regularly achieving an average of 98% accuracy although some of the audios were extremely difficult. My scope has included one on one interviews, focus groups, medical transcriptions, educational thesis, celebrity interviews, transcribing and editing a book on personal development, data collection and AI voice validation projects. I am open to learning new skills and always go the extra mile to ensure that both my client and myself are more than satisfied.

    I have been working from home on Upwork since 2012. I've got experience in Canada, USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland and South African calling. I have worked on numerous projects, from marketing an online financial platform to high net-worth individuals right through to Robotics course marketing for schools, Real Estate, and many more. I'm also highly experienced in in-depth internet research, compiling excel spreadsheets of contacts, names, telephone numbers, etc. I've done Private Equity Recruitment, and I thrive on being on the phone and research I will tackle if it comes my way. I have also been given the opportunity to project manage small teams of Telemarketers on specific projects, whereby I liaise directly with the client, organize daily hours for team members and make sure targets and goals are achieved. (this was a few years back, however and was not through Upwork) Cheerful, dedicated, self-starter and motivated are all my middle names! I have goals, dreams and an ideal future in mind for my daughter who lost her dad last year to cancer, I'm her soul provider and I have no choice but to ensure her future, I am all she has and she is the highlight of my life - so in a nutshell - I have all the motivation and inspiration in saying that to succeed in whatever I do.
