In brief, I took advanced writing and AP English in high school. I went to the University of Washington and worked for their newspaper. I worked as a Marketing Manager at Starbucks for 6 years but it turns out they all told me I could write.My grandmother wrote a book and she showed me how to research and I followed in her foot steps. My passion is writing and I am a great researcher. I have a strong history of writing and researching and that was one of my strengths from my former job.I write with passion and common sense. Honestly monetary value isn't my goal I just want to do what I love.
