I would absolutely love to be a GE. Ever since I heard of the position, I’ve been interested in it. I think it would be so much fun and come quite naturally to me.
So far I’ve been a Chinese to English subber and segmenter, and I’m a Jr Sensei for NSSA I’m also well on my way to Gold QC.
I’m not a native speaker, however:
I’m absolutely fluent and know English better than some native speakers. I knew more than my high school teacher - in fact, I was the only student she didn’t bother summing up test points for, she just gave me an A and called it a day (lol)
I dated an American for four years (so for four years, I constantly spoke, wrote, and watched things in English), and spent almost a year in the US.
Learning English as a second language, I had to study all the rules. I think this makes me more qualified. I can tell you exactly why something is done in a certain way, or what my decisions are based on.
I wouldn’t ask to do it if I weren’t ready. (Note the subjunctive! lol)
Also, I think it would be fun and I’d be good at it.
I’ve found that all upcoming dramas either already have a GE or don’t have a CM yet (I’m keeping an eye on the latter!), so I thought posting here can’t hurt
So, if you’re looking for a GE, please consider me!
All the hugs,
