I have always had a keen interest in the workings of language and especially the profoundly influential effect it can have on people. I achieved two A*s at English GCSE and an A level in English Lang. and Lit, which although may seem primitive, has allowed me to develop a strong basis of literary skills.
For the past year, I have been working for a company that aids foreign students in their applications to the British university system. This includes editing and writing personal statements, reference letters and proposal forms. In addition, I have experienced the university system first hand and have received all the help and advice that comes with it. This means I have a strong knowledge of what they want to hear. I recently helped a Chinese student gain a place studying Mathematics at Oxford University, by writing their personal statement.
I wrote a blog that gained considerable readership, featuring articulate discussions on political and philosophical issues. In addition, I just finished work on a dissertation named \'Should We Be Vegetarian?\'. This enabled me to gain experience in formal education format and parlance.
My motives are not simply monetary as I am considering freelance writing as a career and want to \'dip a toe in the water\' as it were whilst developing my writing further.
