    Experienced Writer and Editor

    United States - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 6

    *TOP RATED on Upwork* There's an old saying: "Find a job that you love to do, and you will never work a day in your life." No truer words have ever been spoken. I have multiple degrees and have worked in education, social work, small business management and more. However, I have never been so happy and fulfilled as I have since I decided to pursue my passion for writing. I enjoy writing everything from marketing materials to children's stories and have proven myself capable of writing pretty much anything given clear expectations. A former teacher and a lover of all things to do with children, I am a hard-working mom of 2 with a passion for self-improvement and a love of education. I never tire of taking on new projects as each new client represents a fresh set of eyes on my work, more feedback and an opportunity to learn and grow as a writer. If I sound like someone that you would like to work with then please do not hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to helping you with your writing needs.

My IB subjects and marks were: Higher level Physics (7/7), Chemistry (7/7), Maths (6/7) and English (7/7) and standard level history (7/7) and French A (7/7). I achieved a total of 44/45 points. I was given the school's academic achievement award upon graduation. In the IB I was able to develop strong writing skills, through the demanding English and French courses, as well as my independent extended essay on the mathematical modelling of reactive circuits. In the summer of 2014 I undertook an internship at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research). There I completed two internal reports for the Engineering group, discussing the potential incorporation of some new technologies in the Large Hadron Collider and other experiments. Though I am originally from Australia, I have lived internationally for most of my life. I have lived and studied in France, Guatemala, Switzerland and now the UK. This international background has afforded me the opportunity to learn both French and Spanish. I also have a strong interest in computer science and programming, and have taught myself the C++ and Python programming languages.
