About the Author

As a lover of the English language and an English/Sociology major, Melissa decided to create this blog to help the world around her.  She has been called upon to utilize her unique skills of editing and writing at places of employment, with friends and random people who somehow think she can help them.  Recognizing the large amount of people in the world who could use help in this area she had the idea to create a blog.  Motivation to complete this project came from a class assignment she would desperately like to ace.  This is important as after years away from college, Melissa has returned and is very near completing her dream of earning a college degree – Yay!

***Update***

I have completed my degree!!!  Double Yay!!!
