I'm currently an undergraduate student. I've been asked to write, illustrate and edit pieces, including essays, short stories and a children's book. In high school, I received a 2280 on my SAT with full credit in the writing portion. Right now, I'm willing and able to take on any proofreading/editing jobs, and most poem or short prose opportunities, however I do not currently have the time to take on larger commitments such as books. Additionally, I spent the past summer in China, therefore, I can lend legitimate experience to writing pieces of related topics.

I am a novice manga artist and writer. I am in high school, thus I won't ask for much; I only wish for experience. I have taken writing classes to make my writing beyond expectations, so my skills in writing are better than my comrades. I have a great imagination, so I am an excellent fiction writer. My artistic skills are still progressing, but are still usable. I also have a nice passion for music, so I can also help with that. Thank you for considering me.

Dj/Soul/deep/Remixer at OusouldeepRecords .... born and bred South African (Pretoria to be exact), was introduced to House Music when i was 15years old. kicked off my live DJing career; and since then, he has released music OuSoulDeepRecords under labels such as SoulRealmRecords (Lesotho) and RoffvEntertainmentRecords. Now signed OuSoulDeep Records Company. So…. What you won’t find though, and what has set this multi-talented individual apart from the rest, is the strong character that powers one favourite DJ’s. My passion for music and hunger to learn, to become better, is something to admire.
