Writer and Editor
I have an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, and I am currently a part-time Fundraising Management student. I have always been a talented writer; at my high school graduation, I was awarded 2nd place in an IODE English essay competition and 3rd place in the IODE History essay competition. My university education further strengthened my written communication skills, as I gained a great deal of experience writing academic papers. My best papers dealt with topics within the realm of ethics.
Currently, I am writing articles and conducting interviews for an online magazine, The Mindful Word. My contributions can be seen here:
While most of my past written work has focused on the social sciences, I am open to any writing assignments, as I believe it is important to diversify my skills. I am a quick learner, meticulous, and good at following instructions, so I am confident in my ability to handle new opportunities. Since I started working on oDesk, I have completed press releases, web content assignments, blog posts, tourism articles, educational stories for children, and SEO-targeted articles; I have also proofread the work of others.
In addition to my writing skills, I have good research skills and social media knowledge. I recently completed an internship as a research assistant for a special events company.
