My name is Herminia Chow. I’m an authenticity reader, a book reviewer, and a content writer in Toronto. I am fluent in English along with Cantonese, but I love learning other languages such as French, Mandarin, and Spanish.
I started a blog in 2013 because I wanted to create content for the web while connecting with other writers.
In university, I worked at a digital marketing agency as an intern. I wrote twelve blog posts and edited an ebook for a team of paralegals who specialize in motor vehicle accidents. During my internship, I learned the basics of search engine optimization (SEO).
I earned an Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto. I completed a major in Book and Media Studies with a double minor in English as well as Writing and Rhetoric. I won four academic scholarships and graduated with high distinction.
After graduation, I began freelance writing for a chartered accountant, a content marketing agency, and a law firm. I created blog posts, email newsletters, landing pages, etc.
In 2019, I worked at an events production company where I proofread event guides on InDesign and designed graphics using Photoshop.
This past year, I helped a musician manage his social media channels. I also did some authenticity/sensitivity reading for a book publisher. Currently, I am a content writer for a digital marketing agency.
