    Professional Writer and Editor, degree in English and Creative Writing

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Art in English and Creative Writing. In the years since graduating from college I have held positions as an Editor in Chief, Administrative Assistant, Chief Blogger, and various other positions wich involved a great deal of professional writing. I believe my writing ability is what sets me apart from other freelancers on the site. I am also adept at administrative tasks such as data entry, creating schedules, communicating with clients, and other organizational duties. Some of my skills include typing a clean 90 WPM, basic HTML knowledge, a strong proficiency in all Word software, professional editing, writing, administrative tasks, and having 11 years of professional experience in these fields. As you can also see from my tests I placed 1st out of 400k+ test takers on the US Spelling Test. Aside from the professional description above I am absolutely in love with writing and words. I've always been told I have a knack for writing the perfect description that people never knew they wanted. Since I was young I devoured books like The Hobbit and a lot of children's books. I decided after college I wanted to devote myself to actually doing what I went to college for. And living in a small town doesn't lend well for writing outside of your home. So I decided the best step to take was to become a freelancer and help people all over the world with their writing needs. I've written everything from stories about video games to a memorial for a loved one. I hope by reading this you can see just how much I love to write. If you're looking for someone who is truly passionate about reading, writing, and language in general, I hope you contact me and let me assist you with the perfect phrase. - Ashley

    Customer Service Refinement and Management l Creative Writing

    Philippines - Last active: 10/22/2014 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 28

    On Customer Service: My communication skills, passion to please and ability to genuinely care for others have landed me into a very rewarding and fulfilling job as a Customer Service Representative, promoted me to Customer Service Consulting and Refinement in just one month's time ( see http://screencast.com/t/rcGb2VtF) and to a Human Resource Manager in the subsequent month. Solving customers'; problems and making them feel good even in the most trying times is a great privilege that I cherish daily and the driving force that propels me on. On Writing: I'm an artist by heart, so everything I do results in a marriage of excellence and beauty. In the same manner that I can make a picture paint a thousand words, I can also paint a thousand pictures with my words. My passion for writing stemmed from my love affair with the English language and my innate zest for life. Give me a dead topic and I will fashion it, mold it, give it a lovely form, breath life into it and animate it. Whatever you want, however you want it. One of my strengths is that I am able to look at one scenario from different point of views. In the end, it's not about the writer, it's all about the reader, so I don't care whether I'm recognized or not. All I want to do is to contribute to the well-being of my collective self present in all thoughts, for in reality, I am my own reader in the person of all others. - Jean
