I am a recent graduate of UC Irvine with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. I am also enrolled at UCLA as an extension student pursuing a certificate in introductory science. I have always been a hard working student and have excelled in every job I have ever been given. I’m pursuing a career in the editorial and writing fields; I currently write and edit freelance as well as blog for my website ElloHoneyBee.com. I believe I’m a dynamic worker when it comes to different types of environments, having worked in all possible positions. Working with all different types of people has shaped me into a very socially dynamic person and informed person.
