“Proofreading is about adding clarity to ideas.”
Favorite referencing style
APA. It is one of the most common referencing styles.
Why I became an editor
I studied biotechnology at university, which involved subjects like biochemistry, microbiology, and genetics. Reading has been one of my favorite pastimes.
Proofreading provides me an opportunity to read and keeps me exposed to research/happenings occurring worldwide.

Why I love proofreading and editing
Proofreading gives me an opportunity to read different forms of writing, which I love. I also get exposed to the latest research carried out worldwide. I love proofreading and editing anything on science, history, and philosophy, and I am experienced in APA, Harvard, and Chicago referencing.
