Hi I’m Randa

As a self-confessed logophile, I have a love of all things literary. I have always regarded writing to be one of the most powerful forms of expression and communication. As a published journalist and researcher, I work with writers of all guises to improve their manuscripts, while respecting the essence and style of the author’s voice, to ensure their work is ready for publication.

Trained by the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, I am those fresh set of eyes that will aid you from behind the scenes to help you achieve your writing aspirations, by improving and enhancing your words, allowing you to focus on what you do best – writing! Or, if writing is not your forte, I can provide you with content for your website or blog. What you will receive from me – as well as my support, friendly ear and guidance – is efficiency, collaboration, consistency and a high-quality outcome of your work.

I also offer virtual assistant services. I help to ease the workload and burden of the daily administrative tasks that are necessary in the running of your business, allowing you to free up your time and achieve success.

About

My Story

After obtaining my undergraduate degree from Kingston University, specialising in ethnomusicology, I completed a Master’s degree in Music and Culture at Roehampton University, focusing on cultural theory, politics and ethnomusicology. I obtained a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education at Roehampton University in 2008, and have previously worked as a secondary teacher in several comprehensive schools in London.

I am a founding member of an academic research group established by Gothenburg and Birzeit Universities, and have published my research in a collective book entitled Palestinian Music and Song: Expression and Resistance since 1900. I have published a number of articles on the topics of Palestinian music and culture, music under occupation, Palestinian Hip-hop, music of the Palestinian Diaspora and music of the Arab Spring, in magazines such as The Middle East in London, The Youth Times and This Week in Palestine.

I have spoken at several conferences and symposiums about my research, and have been interviewed on BBC World News by Zainab Badawi and on Voice of America on the topic of protest music of the Arab Spring.

I worked with Randa to edit the content of my website. She was incredibly helpful in reviewing the content and editing it for clarity. She understood the message I was trying to convey and helped me to tune it in. I live in the USA and the time zone differences did not make a difference to our communication. She was quick, efficient and easy to work with. I can’t wait to work with her again!

I would highly recommend Randa, she did an absolutely incredible job helping me with my dissertation. Randa was completely supportive throughout the process, which with my dyslexia, I found sharing my work with Randa a very comfortable experience, as her positive attitude is encouraging. Randa not only helped me with my work but also helped me with my confidence and positivity towards writing. For anyone in a similar situation that I was in, I would strongly recommend Randa.
