Last active: 3 months ago
Hi, first of all!
I am Lyn, 25 years of age and a proud citizen of my country, Philippines!
Just recently, a friend who I worked for directed me to this site. I have been an intermittent freelance writer for five years now.
Having discovered my passion for writing and reading at an early age, I engaged myself to endeavors that helped me improve my inherent talent on the said skill. I have been an editor-in-chief of our school newspaper from primary school until college. Being in this activity for a long time allowed me to hone my skills and prepared me for the work I will be having in the future.
Knowing that writing is where my heart is, I have started working after I finished my studies in Bachelor of Science in Nursing here in the Philippines. I have to stop temporarily to pursue my dreams in London, United Kingdom where I completed MBA in International Health Care Management in one of the colleges in Oxfordshire.
Right after graduating, I went back to writing and did dissertations and paperwork for several MBA hopefuls and university students. During this job, I got accepted as an International English Language Testing System coach. IELTS is the world's most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration. I have done both jobs while I also pursue my nursing adaptation. Although stressful, juggling multiple jobs tested my ability to manage time and patience as well. It also gave me the wonderful opportunity work with people from different country and background, in a place with a culture not similar to mine. This is in fact one of the reasons why I love my work so much!
I stayed, studied, worked and more importantly learned in London for 3 years. I went back here in the Philippines as I feel I have gained and fulfilled my mission in the UK. Moreover, as my Dad is sick, having to take care of him is one of the plans since childhood I am fulfilling now.
I believe I have so much more to learn and my love for writing is one constant thing in my life. I am still doing the job, and by knowing that I could also do this here in Odesk is such a joy!
I am looking forward to a colorful and fulfilling work here. It is so nice to know that I could work and do what I love at the same time without having to worry about the distance from my loved ones.
So, if you have a job for me, it won't be difficult to do it at all as I am doing what I also love. Rest assured that you are talking to dedicated person - I do what needs to be done and accomplish task in time and with quality.
Have a blessed day everyone! Looking forward to hearing from you.
