Hi, I am an experienced content writer with an elaborate history of working in entertainment, health, technology, politics, and business. I did not choose this profession as much as this profession chose. I used to wonder what I was passionate about, never really got an answer until one day when a friend pointed out how much passion and energy I bring to the table when I write. I used to write for my school magazine and help my friends with their essay competitions; also, does journaling my entire life count? I don't believe in writing to achieve business goals, I love to write, and I put my soul into every piece I create; therefore, I choose topics that truly intrigue me. Being a writer, I understand how important it is to pen down the thoughts so that people reading them can honestly acknowledge your thought process. I work around that goal, and I try to help people tell the world their story excitingly and interactively.
