Favorite referencing style
MLA is my favorite referencing style because it's very straightforward.
Why I became an editor
I've been passionate about reading and writing ever since I was a child. My love for YA fiction led me to write two novels of my own, and I had so much fun editing them that I decided to see if I could do it for a living. I took a 50-hour proofreading course and here I am! There is nothing I enjoy more than perfecting people's writing from the comfort of my home.
Background and experience
I took several fiction writing courses at UCLA Extension, where I also worked as an administrative assistant in their creative writing department. From January 2021 to February 2022, I worked for a medical book publisher in Poland, where I assisted in the organization of medical conferences and in translating medical journals from Polish to English.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love perfecting writing, whether it’s my own or someone else's. I realize this makes me sound nerdy, but I genuinely enjoy correcting grammatical errors! I especially enjoy proofreading and editing documents on music, philosophy, politics, and history. I'm experienced with MLA, APA, and Chicago referencing.
The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer is my favorite book.
When I'm not proofreading, I enjoy doing yoga, writing songs, and watching scary movies with friends.
I find it useful to correct the most obvious grammatical and punctuation errors first. Once those are out of the way, I focus on the more stylistic issues to produce the best writing possible.
