My name is Marìa Gwendolyne Ruìz Vergara (Gwen Ruìz). Born in Puebla, Mexico, I studied a graphic design and photography degree at the Iberoamericana University, one of the most prestigious Universities in Mexico. I used to work for advertising agencies as a copy writer, art director and marketing strategist in Mexico. More recently, I travelled extensively around Europe and Mexico working freelance in graphic design and photography, accumulating diverse creative experiences which have enriched my work and developed my perspective on design, photography and life. I consider myself a very intense person who approaches everything I do with effort and passion. My work is one of the most important ways to be happy because when I design and photography I feel free. It takes me to another world with unlimited dimensions.

I am very interested in reading material from home and proofreading it. I have a love for novels and would take any work in this field available. I do not have any other experience doing this besides my own purchased novels that I have read. In those novels I have surprisingly found many errors that could have been avoided with someone like me proofreading them before they are published. I have taken Advanced Placement English courses through my highschool years and am currently pursuing an english degree in college.
