    Versatility would be the best thing about me with respect to writing: I can be colloquial, technical, academic, creative, or adapt whatever tone the job needs. I also have the innate ability to find interest in all of my endeavors which in turn fuels my passion to achieve excellence. As for being a VA and CSR, I have a knack for foresight and problem-solving: all I need to know is what your end goal is, what you have, and I will take care of the rest. I have a knack for making things work even when everyone else deems it impossible. I have yet to accept a job (whether on- or offline) that I did not excel at after minimal exposure which I believe stems from my ability to streamline processes and think outside of the box.  less
