Editor: Reema Azar
Company: Freelance
Number of years in editing: After being recognized at work for my editing skills, I looked into freelance editing to see what it entailed. I found ACES, discovered the training that they offered, and took advantage of their student membership. I immediately decided to get my feet wet and completed the Poynter ACES Certificate in Editing in June 2018.
