Xiomara Badano

Artist/Illustrator/Writer/Advanced Law Student/Designer

Argentina - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 10

I'm a Senior Law Student with a degree in Artistic Drawing and a huge love for art, design, writing, internet and languages. Being born and educated in Argentina, I'm a native Spanish speaker with excellent grammar and spelling skills. I'm also fluent in English, a language that has been part of my everyday online life and communication for years. My wide range of interests has allowed me to develop a creative mind and skills in different areas. I'm a quick learner, an enthusiastic researcher, and I have taught myself several subjects from basic piano to solving software and OS problems. I'm looking for new challenges to improve my skills and gain experience. My skills include: +Illustration: I have loved drawing and painting since I was a child, and I took extracurricular art classes since I was in Elementary School. I got a degree in Artistic Drawing when I was still in High School. My interest in computers and digital media led me to self-teaching digital painting and edition. +Design: I love designing. Although I don't have any formal education in this field, my artistic background has made me both creative and critical when it comes to graphic design. I think aesthetical beauty and harmony are key elements in any design work. My skills in Adobe photoshop and similar programs are self-taught, and I'm always open to learning to work with new programs and tools. +Writing: I have always found written communication to be the best for me. I can write anything, from articles or academic papers to fiction or poetry, in either English or Spanish. I have experience in blogging, forum discussions, essays, academic writing and legal writing. I love writing short stories and poetry too, and I plan to start working on a novel once I graduate. Becoming a published author is one of my biggest dreams. +Legal: I'm just a few finals and a thesis from graduating from Law School, and I have already finished the legal practice courses required by my program. I have also participated in some of my University's teams for moot court competitions, which have given me more experience in legal writing in both Spanish and English. Since I study in an Argentinian University, I'm more familiar with Civil Law, especially Argentinian Law. However, the competitions I was involved with belonged to the fields of International Public Law and International Commercial Arbitration, so I have experience in legal research on those topics. +Translation: I have been an amateur English-Spanish/Spanish-English translator for some online communities I was/am part of. I'm fluent in English, and writing has always been my strongest skill. Spanish is my native language, and I come from a field of study that requires a strong command of language. I am the main English-Spanish translator in my current research team at University, and I have even done successfully some French-Spanish translations of legal instruments and case law, despite my level of French being basic. +Microsoft Office: My High School's Computer Science syllabus focused mostly in Microsoft Word, Power Point and Excel. I even tutored a few classmates in Excel. +Other: I was a forum admin years ago. By doing research online, I have learned by myself how to solve most of the computer-related problems presented to me, and I keep learning. I worked as a Sales Promoter and Pollster for a tourism company during summer.

Mary Shelton


United States - Tests: 4

For the last 25 years, I have been a landscaper/grounds worker. I have enjoyed my time working outside and with the public. To better myself and family I went back to school and received my AA in Paralegal Studies. In 2012 I became a Guardian Ad Litem for the state of Florida. Some may not know what a Guardian Ad Litem is, it's an advocate for children who have been taken away by the state from their parents, I am their voice in court. I am also a Notary for the state of Florida and I have the ability to travel in Central Florida to notarize for people. A lot of you will think that I have no experience in any kind of office work or writing. I have to argue that with you on that. I am a mother to 3 girls, a step mom to a boy and a girl and a grandmother to 5 boys. All this mothering has left a large amount of experience, humor, skills and abilities that only some can only hope to gain. During my years as a mother, I also played a dual role as taxi driver, mediator, nurse (minor injuries) hair dresser, fashion consultant, judge, jury, lawyer, ATM, cook, maid, and consular. Now, as a step mother my abilities increased to be a referee, a go between, the evil stepmom, a doormat for bio mother and friend. As my age gained speed and my grandsons came along, these duty tripled. I also realized that though out these years as a multi functional mother/stepmom/grandma, I still had 3 other children that I could never find. Yes, I lost 3 children over the years, so please if you see or find "I didn't do it", "not me" and " I don't know". please tell that they should now found a new place to live.
