Location:Colchester, Essex, United Kingdom
2 Skills
I am a published Author and current PhD Student. I hold a BA with first class honours in Humanities, and an MA with distinction in Human Rights (and an A* in English Language at GCSE if you really want to do back that far).

I have over seven years of proofreading experience, and usually specialise in academic work for foreign students up to PhD level. However, I have also proofread ample articles for academic journals, newspaper articles, blog-posts, and official company reports.

My first children's book, Aurelius and I, which was aimed at 9-12 year olds, was published two years ago. I have recently written the text for a young children's picture book which is due to be published in the near future. I am currently working on my second full-length piece.

I have written numerous blog posts for the various NGOs I have worked for.

I have successfully composed grants worth up to $600,000 (USD) while working at aforementioned NGOs.

I have compiled the data for, written, and proofread vast numbers of reports on behalf of a British consultancy company.
