Hello, my name is Amiee and writing professionally has been both a dream and a goal of mine since I was a child. I began writing as a lot of people do, by journaling every day. This led me to more creative ventures and before long I was writing short fictional stories and poetry. While still enjoying this kind of writing in my spare time, later in high school I joined the student newspaper. After a year as a staff writer I was promoted to editor-in-chief of the publication. In college I performed well in all of my writing courses, particularly enjoying my professional writing class. I wrote a multitude of research papers during my undergraduate studies and received high marks on all of them. Ultimately, I became a writing tutor and aided other students in writing more proficiently. Now I hope to turn my dream of writing professionally into a reality.
