As an editor of the high school newspaper, the editor-in-chief of the high school literary magazine, and a college journalism major, I have clearly always been someone who doesn’t mind writing a research paper or an essay.

I’m a fast writer and I managed to get good grades on my papers even when I admittedly didn’t try very hard.
