    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

    I love to write and proofread! I'm very organized and detail-oriented. I'm in my senior year of college on my way to getting my degree in English/Literature with a minor in History. I've worked at a bookstore for the last 4 years and have hopes of getting a career as a librarian or as a proofreader. My ideal job is one where I can work from home, but anything having to do with literature, reading, writing, or editing is right up my alley! I can type 90 wpm, but often can beat that if I get on a roll. I'm very interested in grammar and sentence structure and my attention to detail makes me a great proofreader/editor.
