I am Abeer Shaikh, a civil engineering student from Pakistan, with a strong interest and background in video editing and ecommerce. I started video editing 5 years ago, and over time, my passion for video editing has only touched the ceiling. I have managed social media pages for stores and student societies as a video editor, and I can boast that my work has always been praised. My expertise includes Adobe Premier pro and Capcut.

I translated my video editing skills into ecommerce and started learning amazon, dropshipping, and ebay. I liked the idea of ecommerce and I started viewing it as a gateway towards countless opportunities. Recently, I have completed some courses and stood out among my classmates. My expertise in ecommerce management in addition to video editing skills, is credible.

I am hoping to further my polish my skills via freelancing. I am optimistic that, it will set me up for better opportunities. I would highly appreciate the feedback on the media I have attached to this writeup.

Hi, I'm Angelica! I'm new here and I would like to gain experience and knowledge through this platform to achieve visibility.

In what field do you work and where are you located?
My field of work is Data Entry, intermediate video editing, Microsoft 360, and some very basic data analysis software, converting files to other formats, and writing simple content.

2. What do you expect to learn from other members?

I hope that between all of us, we can help each other to generate more visibility and if it is possible to interact to give each other positive feedback and improve our profile.

3. What (or who) inspires you?

What inspires me to implement this work method is to be able to have my freedom and not to be fulfilling schedules, so I can share with the ones I love and dedicate time to myself and my dreams.

Right now I want to specialize in data analysis with POWER BI and I would like to acquire simple experiences with this skill to gain experience.

I hope I can count on you and get visibility and possibly a contract to start this new journey.

Best regards
