From essays and articles, to creative descriptions and blogging; I can provide what you need in a minimal amount of time. I'm fast, thorough, and creative with my work as well as professional and efficient in my communication. I'm an artist by nature and instinctively seek to make my work flourish and grow, however, I also believe in sticking to the book, task, or assignment given and can give as little or as much feedback as you wish.

Hello, my name is Marissa. I am an average young teenager who has a passion for writing, and photography. I am trying to be responsible and gain money for summer vacation, so why not get money, and do my two favorite passions at once? A good thing about hiring a young teenager is that they have all of the bare necessities from their parents, so most of them work cheap just to earn extra money. I am a very realistic teen who is still an amateur at writing and photography, so I realize that I will not be earning the same about of money as a professional. This summer, I would just like to be independent when it comes to money.
