    Danish, Ambitious and Capable Young Individual

    Denmark - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 2

    I am a Danish female taking the IB Diploma Programme having my Higher Levels in English, Business and Management and History. So far I have only written creative work (can be found on Movellas), and have had some success in that, however without an income. Since I am short of money, and I want to get into the business of writing later on, a writing job is the best for me. Also, my time at school is long, and I have 3 hours of commuting every day, a physical job is not appropriate for me. In that manner, a job which I can do anywhere is the best for me.
