    Bangladesh - Last active: 08/16/2014 - Tests: 13

    I am a native English speaker, I point this out solely because it seems to be a deal maker or breaker here on oDesk. It is every woman's secret desire to be a published author someday, I am no different. To earn a living doing something I love is what I am trying to achieve here. Being a teacher taught me a great deal of things- how to be a good leader, a great researcher and motivator, how to engage people in constructive dialogue and how to work under tremendous pressure. It also honed my management and organizational skills. Every person is greater than their skill set, every individual has more to offer than what is written on their profile. What I want is an opportunity to prove that I am right.
