I have more than five years experience with translating in English, French, and Arabic (native) and my major is English Literature. I taught English in Tunisia, Turkey, and Cambodia. As the owner and founder of a multicultural center in Cambodia, I fully understand the importance of cross-cultural dialogue and establishing clarity across numerous language barriers. I have extensive experience with various types of translation, from marketing related, literature, technical trades, and much more. In college, I conducted translation workshops which focused heavily on sentence structure and explicit versus implied meanings. I am a perfectionist when it comes to translating, and I can assure you 100% satisfaction.

Hello! I am a Librarian at Johns Hopkins University. I work mainly with graduate and doctoral students and faculty assisting them with research, research skills, academic citation, and presentations. I have also maintained a literary blog where I reviewed books and worked with authors and publishers to promote new books. At Johns Hopkins I work with faculty and students in the following areas of study: Business, Education, Biotechnology, Museum Studies, and Engineering. I love working with such a diverse group of subjects as well as high level students because they give me such varied areas to research. No two research questions are ever the same! I became a Librarian because I love to teach, I love to read, and I love to research. I'm an expert at both database research as well as standard internet searches. And you're just as likely to find me running them through my computer as my phone. I'm always one search away from the answer. My love of reading led to maintaining a blog for a number of years. I focused on Young Adult, Romance, and General Fiction books; giving reviews and booktalks for the use of the general public and other librarians. I worked with a number of publishers and authors to promote new book releases. This just goes to show that my undergraduate work in literature found it's way into my semi-professional life. I am looking for work that will complement my work as a librarian. I would love to read, write, or research. I find these tasks fulfilling in both my professional and personal life - and I would love to put my skills to work for you. Computer Skills: • Software (IBM and MAC environments): Microsoft Windows® and Office products, WordPerfect, Photoshop, iLife, iMovie, and various iPad apps. Adept at using Follett and Horizon systems. • Experienced working with Blackboard, LibGuides, ELC, My Backpack, Senior Systems. • Knowledgeable in teaching Internet searching as well as all major Database Platforms. • Expert in creating various Wikis and Blogs; working knowledge of HTML.
I am a PhD qualified researcher, writer, and director of an international award-winning social enterprise. I provide high quality online research services, expert advice in constructing methodologies for social research projects, assistance with academic, social campaign or blog content, and a skilled hand with proofreading and editing. Having worked for a number of research centres, I can also offer an efficient grant and tender writing service. An academically trained researcher with an established track record of researching and writing published reports and articles for diverse audiences, I can gather, analyse and synthesise information in an efficient and comprehensive way. This includes extensive experience analysing qualitative data using Atlas and NVivo. In addition, I can help you if you are campaigning on a particular social or environmental issue. Having a parallel life as a social entrepreneur - check out Unseen Tours in London, Joint Overall Winner of the Virgin Responsible Tourism Awards in 2011 - has meant that I straddle both the worlds of academic research and practice 'on the ground'. This means that I can cut through the jargon and give your campaign the weight it needs while keeping your message sharp and clear.

Graduating from North Carolina State University with B.A. degrees in History and Anthropology significantly honed my abilities as a wordsmith, providing me with the instruments to write on any topic matter in a myriad of settings. This program of study taught me to manage my time effectively, organize my schedule cohesively and submit assignments expediently. A rigorous writing regimen trained me in the fine details of the English language, resulting in a deep understanding of editing for diction, grammar, spelling, subject / verb agreement, syntax and tone. In addition, I spent two years in Computer Science, so I am well versed in computer competency, including a proficiency with Wordpress, Microsoft Office Suite, XML, HTML, CSS, Visual Basic, Java, PHP and UNIX, among other aspects. This interweaving of skills dovetails nicely together to generate a unique approach to writing, whereas other applicants may predictably adopt a singular perspective. For example, all of my pieces are written with keyword density and SEO standards in mind to produce more page views. I am seeking an opportunity to write or edit content for a blog, e-book, project or website, in order to implement my adeptness as a researcher, contribute a bohemian-inspired commentary and supply potential employers with hand-crafted, specialized and adroitly fashioned texts meeting their specific requirements.
My objective is to excel at everything I do, I have elevated expectations and ambitious goals. I always please my employers because of the fact that I communicate with them constantly over the course of a project and give updates as frequently as they request me to. I am able to meet even the most stressing of deadlines, with maximum attention to detail and above average quality at the very least. I have a very wide area of interests and I am hardly ever caught off guard by a job and/or demand. Looking forward to working with you.
