Overview

I have a B.A. in ESL at the Secondary Level, but my passion, and first love, has always been writing. My major has given me the ability to expand my knowledge of English, in both grammar and literature, recognizing how well to capture an audience based on the different elements of a story.

I have customer service experience, revolving around clerical duties, that have accentuated various skills which I would be able to apply to my writing, my voice talent and, of course, meeting the client's expectations.

My OCD is also my strength, as it...

Service Description

I can type 75-85 words per minute, facilitating the writing process by being able to pour my heart (and head) out, giving me ample time to proofread and polish afterwards. I have been told that I have a very good voice with a surprisingly "clean" accent considering I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, my English doesn't have the accent most Puerto Ricans acquire when they learn English.

As a native Spanish-speaker, I do have an understanding of how to translate from Spanish to English without losing the meaning of what's being translated. In terms of writing, I thrive with prompts, participating in communities which give songs, word prompts and/or image prompts as inspiration. I have experience reading aloud, for pleasure, as well as work-related, and am able to complete said tasks with ease (once, I did it while fighting a cold. High five!)

I have read in classes (who hasn't?), while tutoring/teaching and while completing work-related tasks (either stories for the professor to use or the automated recording system set up for my previous employer).
