When I was in third grade, I’d come home from school each night and turn my homework assignments into elaborate stories. Then I’d regale my parents with what I had written. One evening, my dad read over my homework and said, “You should be a writer.”
Even at age nine, that felt right. That calling led me to a master’s degree from Columbia Journalism School, my first journalism job at Roll Call in Washington, D.C., (where I helped cover President Obama’s inauguration), and a seven-year freelance career I launched while living in Asia and have grown since moving back to the U.S.
But why does this matter to you?
You’re an editor looking for great pitches and reliable contributors. You’re a content marketing strategist seeking a freelancer to write for your brand. You don’t have all day to read about a girl who grew up to follow her dreams.
Here’s why I’m telling you this.
Because storytelling is in my bones. It’s the one thing that’s ever come naturally to me.
I’ve written about the 2016 presidential campaign, the tech scene in Myanmar, human rights in Thailand, the best infused cocktails in Beijing, and ghostbusters in D.C. I’ve written brand articles and case studies about fintech, automation, and artificial intelligence. But no matter how varied or off-the-wall the assignments, once the process begins, the world goes quiet and the writing is all I see.
If I’m writing for you, I’m giving you everything I’ve got.
That goes for reported articles, essays, blog posts, case studies, white papers, and ebooks. No matter what the assignment, I’m researching, outlining, writing, and revising until I’ve delivered something you — and your audience — want to read.
You can read in my testimonials that I’m reliable, deadline-oriented, and always looking for ways to improve. Those attributes are important in a professional relationship, and I guarantee to bring them to every assignment and project. But what matters most is the writing. And writing is what I was born to do.
