My name is Zaid Quraishi. I pride myself on being a meticulous and organized individual who has done his Bachelors in Medical Technology and currently pursuing my Master's in the same course from Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences. I belong to the beautiful valley of Kashmir, and my hometown is Srinagar. I am the elder sibling of my younger brother. As far as my strengths are concerned, I am effectively communicative, optimistic, reliable, a team player, and time-efficient. My weaknesses are that I am an honest person and I tend to be blunt, and sometimes, I like to work alone. 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. Currently, I am a content writer in a dynamic work environment at Shouzy, ready to improve readers' satisfaction and increase retention levels.
