I am passionate about content writing, online gaming, and learning new things, especially languages (currently German). I have written two papers for my University degree, which helped me immensely in learning how to write effectively. I am confident in my writing skills, and I can effectively pour my thoughts out in writing and express myself so that the reader relates to it and is intrigued by the content. I love to play with my pet cat, and she is a darling to me. The thing that I dislike the most is being distracted when you are in the zone.
