9 years working in the young adults /children sector. Notable clients: UNICEF Romania, Austrian and European organizations and clients in the worldwide private educational sector.

Working with Canadian, American and German clients has developed my skills on writing about global matters of YA, down to the deepest, most personal ones.

My experience working one-on-one with hundreds of young adults (YA) has shaped my thinking, as well as my writing to fit the young generationís need for quality, reliable information, to which they can relate...

Service Description

Proactive, determined, I get to the concept core from the start. I am a progressive thinker, and this translates into my writing.

Perfectionist, I always provide the best quality and attention to detail for every client. I work in a very interesting niche: Young Adults (YA) & kids. Interesting because of its dynamic, as the new generations come with a unique set of social and personal issues never encountered before. They are the tech generation (brought up entirely with technology, as opposed to my generation, millennials, who experienced both sides: non-tech and tech) and we need to adapt to their view of the world.

I can easily adapt to the YA level of sophistication in the type of info they expect to read. With my work, I want to create an open, very communicative bridge with the young generation, to merge ideas and concepts, both old and new, with the sole purpose to contribute to a global society united by communication, regardless of age gaps, interests, social aspects.

My work is always concerned with what I bring to the reader, an experience where they donít see just information, but value. My writing seeks to get to the reader, to determine them to think outside-the-box, to see things in a unique perspective. To put it in just a few words, my writing will impress the reader by depth.

My work background

Clients: university start-up in Germany, American writer, and many others.

My experience with hundreds of YA and children has shaped the way I see them,...
