    Haniya H.

    Expert Editor and Writer

    Pakistan - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 3

    I am a writer not a fighter! I also am a Pakistani, having lived as an expat in Australia and Saudi Arabia. I used to edit academic papers for my dad (who is an academic) but I thought now is the time to get paid for doing what I do best which is being particularly finicky about grammar, punctuation and spelling. I am a Law student and an ex-Literature student which means that writing is kind of my forte (even if nothing else is). So in conclusion (of this extremely unprofessional sell), if you are thinking of someone to fulfill your writing and editing needs, perhaps, I might be the one you want.
