    Despite graduating with a Film and Marketing double major (and therefore proficient in both fields), I have discovered a passion for writing. I have maintained the highest standards in my ability to write and my English proficiency, and have had relevant experience as a copywriter in an agency. I hold an interest in technology, gadgets and especially video games - and aspire to be an editor in a publication involved in the latter industry.
