Part Time Writer, Full-Time Teacher, Ex-Medical Student
I have been actively writing for oDesk (now Upwork) clients for more than four years now, and have written in a variety of topics ranging from pet care to self-improvement. Most of my clients hire me for long-term projects due to my reliability and dedication to deliver only top-quality work.
I graduated last year with my Bachelor in Medicine and Surgery, but previously freelancing was my way of keeping finances manageable during my student years and to indulge in my longtime passion, writing. I continue to freelance as I love the freedom it gives me and the supplementary income does not hurt too. At the moment I am completing a fellowship with Teach for Malaysia, a program which hires talented graduates of various fields to serve in high-need schools around Malaysia as teachers, for a contract period of two years. I love my job and helping the kids, but my salary is limited and some extra income could help me in getting better teaching aids for my students and also help with my own expenses as well.
My assurance to those hesitating to hire me is that I will write to your satisfaction, each and every time. My language proficiency is very high, as you can see from my oDesk tests. Having been speaking English and writing in it since I was young, I am as good as any native English speaker. However, I continuously improve myself by lots of heavy reading to expand my vocabulary.
My objectives for being on oDesk are:
1) Sharpen my writing skills even further
2) Attempt to create a good long term part-time career out of writing
3) Increase my knowledge in various topics through my assignments.
