    Professional Freelance Writer

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 16

    I am a registered nurse and a FULL-TIME online freelance writer with over 3 year of experience in writing feature articles, essays, and blogs. For this reason, I am very confident that I CAN DELIVER ASSIGNMENTS ON OR BEFORE DEADLINES. To get an idea about my writing skills, please visit my website: I am a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Makati. I graduated as a Cum Laude and awarded the Top 3 best in Intensive Care Unit. I earned a grade of 1.20 (93) in both Communication Arts and Skills Course 1 and 2. I also had the same grade in my Rhetoric course. During my college years up until now, I consistently look for ways to improve myself both in writing and speaking by writing for our University paper, my affiliated Church and by joining a spokesman club. My course also required us to make a thesis which highly polished my English skills since I'm the one who is in charge of proofreading and editing. I recently passed the board exam on December 2010 with a passing rate of 81.80. Given with these credentials, I believe I will make a very competitive candidate for any job. The key strengths that I possess include: - Acquisition of effective knowledge and skills about the English language - Being a wide reader and provider of exceptional contribution to the employer - Striving for continued excellence and have a strong drive of going beyond mediocrity With a BS in Nursing, I believe I gained the full understanding of writing effective blogs, essays or articles. I'm also open to improving myself and gaining new experiences as needed to be better equipped for the job.
