Hello! My name is Ivana Baglama Papež; even though I am new on this site, writing articles is nothing new to me. I worked at Hipp group (the biggest producer of baby food in Europe) as a propagandist in Acquisition of packaging materials; English language was mandatory; that is how I perfected my knowledge of English language; both written and spoken. My best traits are translating busssiness documents, e-mails, anything that is in a connection with economics, although I look forward translating all kinds of texts in English language. The thing that I enjoy the most is the keyword writing. I just love the idea when I create a whole article based on one word, I guess I like the final result and to look how a whole article transforms into one unique creative whole. I consider myself adaptable to the surroundings, kind, communicative, tactical and interested in additional work and education. The thing that I am most interested is to expand my knowledge of English language, to improve my skills as a writer, to become better and better by each project I pursue.
