Writing, Language, and Design

United States - Last active: 12/12/2012 - Tests: 6

I am a graduate of Syosset High School and finished my year with an honors in writing and foreign language. Since a very early age, I have always been an avid reader which helped to enhance my vocabulary skills as well as expose me to different styles of writing. I've also been studying Japanese for the past three years and Mandarin for a year and a half. I have been studying Italian since I was in grade school myself and am near fluent in the language. I have a little screen-writing experience from the film class I took in my senior year of high school. From the reading and writing I have done for most of my life, I have grown to be able to spell rather well and have a working knowledge of grammar. I have the full-chart of the full international phonetic alphabet placement of the lips, tongue, teeth to form all the consonants, vowels, and diphthong. I have been involved with music since I was a child and have fantastic sight-reading skills in both clefts and for voice. I have a three-octave range and can sing in both head and chest voice. I have had experience with the piano and violin, the former of which I have recently resumed. From my diverse experiences, my goal is to use these skills to assist others properly. I am punctual and analytical, and take time to go over my work as well as the work of another.

Vanessa Hammett

Copywriter

United States - Last active: 05/16/2014 - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 2

Hi! My name is Vanessa Hammett. First, I need to tell you that I love writing. I’ve been writing stories, letters, and articles for years, and I love every spine-tingling, hair-pulling, crazy-author minute. All of my work up until now has been for family, friends, and good causes – for example, the article I wrote for our local library. I can’t tell you how many people visited just because of that one article. It satisfied something deep inside me to see something I wrote get results like that. That is why I am so excited for this opportunity to write for you. I can’t wait until I finish your project and get to see your business thriving. I love seeing results. Praise is good, too.
