Every time I see you I see someone I want to get to know more….. The way you look at me makes me melt, the sound of your voice gives me peace, and the warmth of your smile soothes my soul… The way you talk about others brings me joy, and your passion for life makes me want to share mine with yours… Every day that that we are apart makes me want to see you even more…even when I talk to you I still think about you…you have made a lasting impression and an imprint on my heart… I can only say that I love you more every day and that when I am with you my life seems complete….. I feel as though we have known each other forever; because now I cannot picture my life without you in it…. The future is uncertain I know; but how I feel you for isn’t… Thanks for coming into my life like you did, for your kindness, unselfishness and utter humbleness… it is second to none and so are you.

I have been enamored with the written and spoken word since I was a child. I grew up in a house full of books. My parents instilled a love of reading in me at a very young age. I was given a piano shortly after my father passed away. I have been playing and writing songs ever since. After spending more than a decade in show business, I spent several years working in the advertising field. I then decided to become a teacher. I have more than 20 years of classroom experience that include several years teaching in third world countries. Recently, I returned to the United States and decided to devote my time entirely to writing and music. I am actively pursuing freelance assignments and I am committed to refining my skills as a writer. +

I earned my degree in Mass Communication at Lamar University in 1988. I have practical experience as a writer and reporter for the Orange Leader and Southwest Daily News in Louisiana. In Des Moines, Iowa, I was a free-lance writer for The Iowan magazine and The Des Moines Register. I have also done typesetting and clerical jobs. LEAH C. RUSSELL 1535 Liberty, Apt. B Beaumont, Texas 77701 monkeycarkeys@yahoo.com Dear Sir or Madam: I am ready, willing, and able to reenter the workforce and be an invaluable asset to your company. The best way to describe my work history is chronological order, which will also show my backbone, and fortitude. My career in print journalism began for me in college at the University Press and Scene and Sound followed by the Beaumont Enterprise internships. This time period included a series of articles on the homeless published first for the Press and later in the Orange Leader along with their articles. The series won First Place in the Texas Gulf Coast Press Association for the Leader. Concern in the community from the articles caused a shelter to be opened in Orange. I investigated series and issues most would not touch as a young cub reporter, many assigned to me, and handled it well for one so young at 21-years-old. I took a brave risk again at 21, newly married, and fresh out of college in 1989 and grabbed a temporary position at the Southwest Daily News. With only two sources given, I found many other sources, did many fresh feature articles, helped in layout, design, and helped with rewrites for a 36-page tabloid on Lake Charles Contraband Days and an 84-page broadsheet for the City of Sulphur's 75th Anniversary. Based upon my performance, I was hired full-time and permanent with a pay increase as a news feature, investigative reporter who also covered hard, spot, and other news. Before my relocation to Des Moines, Iowa, for my former spouse to study law, I had mostly self-taught and hands-on experience in desk top publishing using such programs as PageMaker. Before I moved to Des Moines, I had established contacts and sources via The Writer's Market. When I arrived, therefore, I was able to hit the ground running as I freelanced for The Iowan and Des Moines Register. When I arrived in Houston from Iowa, I signed up mostly with temp agencies and gained more experience as an Administrative Assistant which began in Des Moines at Drake University. Should you hire me, I would be an asset to your company with fresh eyes and a professional and personal background that I could show you how it could work for you in an interview. I thank you for your time and acceptance of my resume, and await your reply. Very Truly Yours, Leah C. Russell LEAH C. RUSSELL 1535 Liberty, Apt.
