I, Jerrika L. Waller, am a Pisces and publishing professional whose primary focuses are editing, web development, and social media. I am currently pursuing my MA in Publishing and Writing at Emerson College.
I have corrected my friends’ spelling and proofread their papers for as long as I can remember, and while I got into publishing for editing, I’ve learned in the past few years that I can focus my passion to digital publishing, and extend it to web development and social media management. As a result, I am seeking opportunities to develop these skills and find the area of digital publishing where I would best fit. I have writing experience with reporting and creative nonfiction, as well as design and visual media experience. I perform best in dynamic positions that challenge and teach me, and love chances to try a little of everything. Relationships are important to me personally and professionally, and I am looking for places that similarly value meaningful and productive interactions rooted in trust and effective communication.
In my personal life, I enjoy Harry Potter, single-player video games, my beautiful cat, and making links. I am allegedly “sarcastic,” but I think that’s directly caused by British humor and my genetics (which Ancestry.com actually tells me are “70% British,” despite a web of Western European genealogy).
