Creation Media is a small company that puts out an annual University Guide booklet.. The guide is a compilation of universities in Egypt. The booklet is meant to help students choose a major and university that best suits them. I also write short articles for the booklet on trends in majors, study tips, career trends, etc. As a member of the team, we also go around schools and give presentations and seminars to high school students. I am in charge of writing out the presentation that addresses senior high school students.

Education/Teaching, Training/Instructor

Experienced (Non-Manager)

I was privileged to work at the Magdi Yacoub Hospital in Aswan, teaching general English to the nurses. This was supposed to be a six-month project, but unfortunately it only lasted a month due to the difficulty of scheduling. The nurses are on a tight schedule, and the hospital found that fitting English lessons into their daily routine was quite difficult.

Editor at Teen Stuff Magazine

Experience Details

Editor

Writing/Editorial

Experienced (Non-Manager)

Teen Stuff Magazine is an English magazine written for and by youth. No adult writing is allowed. I edit all the articles written by the teen staff writers; focusing on grammar mistakes, spelling, misused expressions and vocabulary etc... and I help mentor in the types of articles to be written. This is a part-time job and I work from home for all initial editing and do final editing at the office. Teen Stuff shut down in 2014, after a very long and strong run in the market.

I have worked as a freelance writer in several magazines before and had several articles published; mainly social and community magazines. I have also worked in summarizing mainstream Business books, that would be, later on, distributed to companies and mid and high level managers of companies. My role was to read the books supplied for me, and summarize them into approximately 12 pages.

I do other writing as brochures, fliers, etc...

I have always worked freelance in writing and editing because my main job was teaching English as Foreign Language.

My preference is to work from home.
