What I want to do

Hello there. My name is Makala A., and welcome to my page. I can't call myself a "professional" writer, for there are nevertheless numerous things left for me to learn within the lettering world, but I can surely say I am a decent writer. I enjoy covering different topics, from headline news to personal financial development. Besides writing, learning is something I enjoy doing one of the most. I find interest in numerous things in life, like different cultural backgrounds and eccentric styles of life, like strange animal species and also the extraordinary functionality of the human body. In general, I'm an all-around-type of writer.

I took on freelancing not too long ago. I've written many articles on my personal favored topic, money management, as well as the important connection it shares with the powerful consumer-driven world we live in. Many readers have mentioned their appreciation for the types of articles I produce, particularly ones that are financially-related, like the world of credit, money and children, loan products and student debt, to name a few. Although I also enjoy writing entertainment and "newsy" articles, I feel the have to express more words on these very important financial topics.

Although it was not always this way, saving money has become the top concern in the minds of numerous consumers these days. Mass chaos was the result of the recent economic recession. The ones which were hit the hardest were the ones who weren't financially prepared. It was they who felt the roughest core of the economic impact. Fortunately, thanks to the ups and downs of the economy, a lot more and more people are finding out that there is not as shielding as being financially prepared. And this, my friend, is yet an additional reason why I love writing - to help those in financial need, big and small.

Writing is powerful and utterly effective. For me, it provides every single person the opportunity to extend to the world what they have to offer, regardless how controversial it may be to others. For the human psychological intelligence, there is nothing better (or worse) than writing. Although I know there are still many things to discover on this journey I've taken on, I know I've learned a lot over these years. I look forward to more learning and sharing with my future readers and spectators.
