  4. Hi and welcome to my blog . I’m Kyra.
    I have always dreamed of being a novelist but never dreamed I’d make a career of it. In college, though, I helped a fellow student who needed help. She could not stop telling me how well I had done. Word got around and someone asked me for writing help just a week later. This time they would compensate me for my work.
    During the summer, I started doing research paper writing for students at the local college. It helped me have fun that summer and even funded some of my college tuition. Today, I still offer my writing skills to students.

  5. Hello, it’s Amiee Bernard here!
    I work as a professional an essay writer and have created this content with the intent of changing your life for the better. I started honing my writing skills in high school. I learned that my fellow students needed writing help—and they were willing to pay for it. The money was enough to help pay my tuition for my remaining semesters of college.
    Ever since college, I have continued to work as an academic writer. I was hired by a writing service based in the United Kingdom. Since then, the essays that I have written have been sold around Europe and the United States.
    In my line of work, I have become accustomed to hearing, “Amiee Bernard, can you help me meet my writing assignment deadline?” I know that I can save their time.
