    I'm a recent university graduate from the Philippines with a passion for writing and editing, even though I graduated from a Bachelor of Science in Nursing course and am a registered nurse. I have flexible hours and am fluent in both English and Filipino. Due to the high volume of paperwork nursing students go through, I have a lot of experience in writing papers and researching. I'm a team player but can take on a leadership role if needed. You won't regret hiring me.  less
