Favorite referencing style

APA because it's what I'm most familiar with.

Why I became an editor

It has been quite a habit for me to point out errors on what I read. Then, I decided I wanted to be better at it! Taking the proofreading course, along with looking up on several grammar and punctuation books, improved my skills – now I can see more errors! They may be baby steps, but learning is a continuous process.

Background and experience

My proofreading and editing experience started with my training at Proofreading Academy and a role at Proofed.

Why I love proofreading and editing

It has always been a pleasure (and leisure) for me to proofread anything printed or even spoken. It may sound geeky, but the thought of a freshly edited material (with words and punctuations in their right places) gives me a sense of fulfilment.

Favorite book:

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Hobbies:

I love spending time with my family, either just watching movies at home, shopping at the mall, or going on a vacation at some beach!

Editing tips:

I want to read everything first before I do the editing. Spelling and spacings check usually take several runs. Then I re-read everything (it doesn't matter how many times) before turning the material in.
