About

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.

  2. Going back to your post: Want to burn everything I write…please don’t. You will regret it later. No matter what it is, keep it…you may need it later, it may even end up being one of your most inspiring motivations later on. πŸ˜‰

  4. Do you have tips on making it as a dancer….how do you support your passion? I have to get a job to help pay for classes (dance/school) and I feel demotivated just thinking about all the time I will be putting into a job that I might not even like. It’s hard because I’m very sensitive and anything I choose would have a huge impact on my entire life.

    I think your blog is amazing. You’re a great writer!

    1. If you can maybe try to find a job related to dance or one of your other passions. See if you could work at your dance studio or something similar. I know that isn’t always possible, so find an aspect of your job that you do like. Yeah I’m quite picky too. I hope everything works out for you though. For me balancing my interests like dance with my obligations such as school keeps me motivated.
      Thank you!

      1. I hope my wishes weren’t weird and late.
        Life was busy in my house, and I completely forgot if I wishes all my friends the best year.
