SAMPLE ASSIGNMENT - MUST COMPLETE TO BE CONSIDERED:
1.) Edit and enhance this Linked In Bio
My name is Freddy Apura and I am a problem solver. In 2012, I left my hometown in Texas and ventured south to pursue a bachelor’s degree at The University of Minesota. The pathway that I originally believed would lead me to become a doctor twisted and turned until I found myself deeply emerged in the world of business.
From researching bumblebees to organizing one of Alaska’s largest cycling competitions, my college journey was jammed packed with a diverse set of hands on experiences. My first corporate internship taught me that the material I learned inside the classroom had limited application in the real world. I decided at that moment to focus on gaining real work experience.
In 2015, I attended The Fast Startup Conference in San Diego and shifted my focus from climbing the corporate ladder and began working with startups. This conference was life changing, not from the material taught but by the perspective I gained from meeting real entrepreneurs dedicated to the everyday grind. Ever since I have been passionately working as a freelance consultant to help various startups bridge the gap and make their own dreams a reality.
While I do have a full-time job with Google, I enjoy maximizing my three and four day weekends into adventure excursions. Last year I flew 76 times and spent over 100 nights in hotels. My goal is to see every country in the world before I turn 25.
On the side, I am a travel writer, freelance consultant and business owner of multiple ventures including an advanced travel hacking course and e-commerce digital store.
At the end of the day, finding solutions to complex problems is one of my biggest rushes. I am someone who rigorously questions everything in the world around me while thinking outside of the box to develop creative solutions. I am confident that the world is actually not that complex and that any problem is solvable if you can first understand the system that dictates it rules.
2.) Edit and enhance this hook:
Over the past two years, Rwanda has seen a massive explosion in tourism. With 1.6 million foreign visitors in 2016, the small country with a population of about 332,000 citizens has been adapting quickly to accommodate the new guests. Thanks to Blue Air's $99 fares to Nundah, getting to Rwanda is cheaper and easier than ever. Ever since I visited the Land of Sand and Stone, two years ago, I have been dying to get back. With Blue's recent Dallas expansion, I was able to grab another $600 round-trip fare, this time, however, with the intention of avoiding the ever-expanding crowds and checking The Ion Adventure Hotel off of my personal hotel bucket list.
Again, you MUST complete the sample assignment in order to be considered. If you have examples of your sample work, please send that as well.
