    New Zealand - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 1

    I write, I translate, and I do anything in between. I have a passion for writing, and this includes free writing, proofreading, translating, and rewriting. I'm a native English-speaker from the United States, and have my Bachelor's degree in German and Anthropology from Luther College. "Very nicely done. It is obvious that you have experience writing online, but what was most striking about your writing is your ability to maintain a sincere and friendly voice. I truly felt like you were a friend offering expert travel advice- and that is exactly what the client is looking for. I'd be honored to have you help me finish this project." - my first paying client Since childhood I have always been the one peers and coworkers come to when they need an something proofread. I consistently receive good feedback for my writing - especially for my strong "writing voice." I now freelance write as a profession rather than just a hobby - and my passion for it is only getting stronger.

    Determined Fast and Reliable

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7

    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all functions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers. I have transcribed videos and audio files. I enjoy writing and this passion has helped me to write many articles on a variety of topics in both English and French. I know the value of getting work done quickly and accurately. I am good at leading others to accomplish that same goal.
