    Hi, my name is Chevaun Roux. I am graduate from Stellenbosch University with a BA in Value and Policy Studies. My writer profession started as soon as I graduated from university and have spent years writing about any and every topic under the sun- whether these were short emotive pieces, product pieces, whether it meant writing marketing e-books for overseas clients, or creating stimulating content for website owners. The practice of editing and proofreading falls within my domain of work as well, which also includes every topic imaginable. I am able to write with fluidity and ease, and have the ability to make words and thoughts flow into each other without breaking the feel of the piece. In the world of freelancing there are certain things that have to be taken into account all the time in order to produce something of superiority in this competitive world- this is namely punctuality and quality. Without these two key factors completed works would not have the same effect and standing as they should. Producing something of a high standard that meets a deadline are two key points in creating and releasing a final product. Writing is a wildly creative and interesting undertaking and I try to harness these features in every article I write, or in every piece of work that I edit. It is my belief that with these notions in mind every work I deliver will be compelling, accurate, inventive and worthwhile.  less

    I am a graduate of Thomas Edison State College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities. Although this specific degree covers many areas, my main areas of study consisted of English, Literature, and Writing. Within the bounds of my higher education, I learned how to successfully write in many genres including fiction, non-fiction, persuasion, news reporting, and PR. It was also part of my college career to learn extensive information about the English language, communication, and also the works of countless literary figures and philosophers. Apart from the academic tools gained, I also learned how to successfully write using computer programs, do extensive research in a professional manner, submit projects before or precisely on deadlines, and communicate on a successful and professional level with those with whom I am working. Concerning communication, 90% of my interactions with those of a professional/educational level over the past three years has been strictly via email, posts, and telephone. Therefore, I have communicational abilities that will assist me in communicating successfully with all employers with which I interact. As a side note, I have also progressively worked on a novel over the years which has assisted me in developing the ability to organize huge tasks into small, manageable parts. I have also trained as an ambassador for a program called CollegePlus! which required me to organize my own promotional event, write my own speech, create a presentation, and deliver information in a fresh and exciting way. This training enhanced the skills of effective communication, interaction, and writing, bringing my proficiency in these areas to a higher level. I know my experience will be of great benefit to me and to those who employee me. I look forward to working with you in the very near future.  less
