Throughout my life thus far, I've always been heavily involved in art. While I lack a lot of professional experience, I’m fully prepared to handle whatever work load you can give me. I’m best at writing however I’m highly skilled with drawing and illustration. I personally do a lot of comicing in my free time. I’m also skilled with fashion photography and photography in general. I spent most of my life reading and writing. I can do anything from essays to ghostwriting, from poetry to children’s books, and from full scale books to the developmental process needed by any writer. I’m completely open to any and all critique and/or editing process you prefer. I’ve been in the world of comics and art design since I was about six or seven. I started drawing and illustrating seriously in about the sixth grade and have come a long way. I’m best at portraits and abstract work along with horror and gore images. I also do costume design and creation. My range of photography goes from fashion to costuming and documenting. I’ve both directed and designed photo shoots. However, I’ve only worked in close quarters with the models in question. I realize that there are situations where there is no interaction with the models what so ever and these are not the situations I’ve handled and worked with. Please keep that in mind. In each and every situations in which you wish to enlist my services, I will personally take the time to write up a contract with which we both agree before work begins so that we can both be clear on what service is meant to take place. If you have any questions or would like further details on any area in which you wish to hire me, please feel free to contact me at any point and I will do my absolute best to answer your questions to the fullest. If you would like examples of my work before you hire, please feel free to contact me with what it is you wish to hire me for and I will personally take the time to tailor an example to fit your needs so that you know I’m capable of the job you wish to have done. Thank you for your time and I hope that we can work together in the future. -Amanda M. M. Segovia

I have been a creative individual for as far back as I can remember. As a young girl, aside from being outdoors, creativity was my favorite passtime - I was always writing songs, poems, stories even making up newspapers with my sister. Throughout my secondary school years, I won various contests, but, for some reason, never took it seriously as I was quite involved in sports and my school being quite small, lacking an arts outlet. I never pursued it (my writing remains in the private confines of my desk) but continue to enjoy writing, as many do. As I am involved in my current career, I always tell people my dream job would be writing in some capacity. This is new for me (posting an ad)I realise I am amongst great talent. I, like most of us, believe in my ability. Not only that, I am very reliable, down to earth, put %100 into everything I do, have a positive and upbeat attitude, resulting in me being an enjoyable person to work with. I consider myself to be more than compotent, however I am rating myself as a humble compotent.

NamesTunisia, al-Jumhuriyyah at-Tunisiyyah, is a sovereign republic. Yet the country's proper name has changed radically more than once over the course of millenia. Hence, such a term as "ancient Tunisia" is frankly anachronistic. Nonetheless, "Tunisia" will be used throughout this history for the sake of continuity. Undoubtedly, the most ancient Berbers had various names for their land and settlements here, one early Punic-era Berber name being Massyli.[1][2] After the Phoenicians arrived, their city of Carthage evolved to assume a dominant position over much of the western Mediterranean; this city-state gave its name to the region.[3] Following the Punic Wars, the Romans established here their Province of Africa, taking the then not-widely-known name of Africa from a Berber word for 'the people'.[4][5] The Roman capital was the rebuilt city of Carthage. After the Arab and Muslim conquest, this name continued in use, as the region was called in Arabic Ifriqiya. Its capital was relocated to the newly-built city of Kairouan. The Fatimids later moved the capital of Ifriqiya to Mahdia, a city they founded, but then the Zirids returned it to Kairouan.[6] In the twelfth century the Berber Almohads [al-Muwwahids] conquered the country and began to rule it from Tunis, an ancient but until-then unimportant city, which thus rose to become the capital.[7][8] The whole country then came to be called Tunis after this city (near the ruins of ancient Carthage). Tunis continued as the capital under Turkish rule, and remains so today. Only in the last years of the nineteenth century, under the French protectorate, did the current name Tunisie [in French] or Tunisiyya [in Arabic], (Tunisia in English), come into common use.[9] During these millennia of history under different states, the names for the country changed. They include: Massyli, Carthage, Africa, Ifriqiya, Tunis, Tunisia. [edit] History OutlineIts long history may be very briefly outlined or summarized.[10] Here a reverse chronological order is employed. |8| The two presidential regimes of independent Tunisia have fostered and steered the country's economic development, and navigated the state in the once bipolar now post–Cold War world. Tunisia has retained close ties both to Arab countries and to the West. |7| Earlier the French had incorporated Tunisia into their sphere (1881–1956), preceded by many Italian settlers, merchants and farmers. Modernizing of methods in business and industry was achieved. |6| Before that, Tunisia was under the Ottoman Turks who had seized lasting control in 1574 after a brief Spanish occupation. The Ottomans eventually held Tunisia indirectly, through the Muradid and Husaynid Beys. The Ottoman Empire used the Turkish language; with it arrived a multi-ethnic influx. |5| Prior to the Turkish era, the long medieval period had seen a cultural renaissance under the rule of native Berbers, already Arabized. First the Zirids (973-1160) had ruled as vassals of the Fatimids who had relocated along the Nile; later the Zirids established an independent Ifriqiya, by breaking with the Fatimids. Next the Almohad movement succeeded in uniting the entire Maghrib, including Ifriqiya. Then the local Hafsid dynasty (1227-1574) of Tunis followed, ruling for many centuries during times both prosperous and lean, contested and peaceful. Their lands stretched form Constantine to Tarabulus. |4| The Islamic era had opened with the arrival of the Arabs (late seventh century). The Arabs brought their language and the religion of Islam, and its new calendar.[11] The Arabs also renewed the region's cultural ties with the Semitic east. Later the Fatimids, a Shi'a state, arose in Ifriqiya, circa 909; the Fatimds eventually conquered and ruled Egypt. |3| During the last pre-Islamic centuries the Byzantines ruled, along with Berbrer vassals, and before them the Vandals (439-533). Over two thousand years ago the Romans had arrived, initially allied with Berber kingdoms; their cosmopolitan Empire long governed this Africa region as part of an integrated Mediterranean world. |2| Before the Romans, came the Phoenicians, by sea from the eastern Mediterranean about three thousand years ago. The Phoenicians founded here the celebrated city of Carthage. Punic culture interacted continuously with the native Berbers, but the two did not then merge. |1| Earlier came migrations from surrounding territories including the north, the east, and the Sahel region of Africa. Perhaps eight millennia ago, already there were peoples established here, among whom the proto-Berbers (coming overland generally from the east) mingled and mixed, and from whom the Berbers would spring, during an era of their ethno-genesis.[12][13] [edit] Climate change
