Hello, there! I'm glad you found my online portfolio.  Here you can access some of the work I've written throughout college, but I'll give a brief overview about myself.  I'm Anna.  My dream since childhood is to work for a company that does good for the world; I want to make a positive difference to our society and leave this planet better for future generations.  I want to work for a company that brings happiness to its clients, whether that be through literature, interior design, academics, or some other method.  I only apply for jobs that I really want and for which I strongly believe I would be a good fit.  I don't want to come into a position for which I don't have passion.  I'm a diligent and dedicated worker and I put forth only my best work, but I believe there is always room for learning and growth.  I want to evolve with a company and develop myself along the way, bringing new ideas to the table and working collaboratively with my peers.  I'm competent and never complacent; I always strive for improvement.  Give me the opportunity to prove myself. You will not be disappointed.
