    As an historian and writer, I have built a strong foundation for my skills of conducting, analyzing and communicating research (and its findings) to rest upon. While I persistently strive to enhance and expand these skills, the decisively efficient and organized nature of my research process proves very useful when confronted with a tight deadline. The privilege of being educated in a writing- and child-centered primary school created the space for a simultaneously mechanic and impassioned inclination toward written communications. The coupling of these two skills (efficient research methods and ease with written communications) work synchronously to allow a more fluid and thoughtful writing process.  less
