    United States - Portfolio: 4

    As a writer and editor I believe it is my job to get readers to enjoy the written word. Whether it be entertaining or educational, all too often in our hectic schedules people find themselves drifting off the page unable to pay attention. Keeping the reader interested is becoming a work of art, and I would like to think of myself as your artist for hire. I enjoy writing compelling and concise articles, web content, academic and professional content, or anything else your business may need to keep people interested. I am meticulous about spelling and grammar, and feel that accuracy and timeliness are paramount when working on any project. I also have extensive expertise in writing speeches. As a member of the collegiate Speech/Debate team, I have given numerous speeches in front of audiences of various sizes and have written countless speeches for professionals to brides and grooms.

    Customer Service Refinement and Management l Creative Writing

    Philippines - 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
