What is your favorite part about being a Contributor?

Everything so far has been very intriguing. There are so many different options – a person can do something different each day and I really enjoy that.

What has working for Appen enabled you to do that you could not before?

My partner and I only have one vehicle, which makes it difficult for us both to work outside of the house. Appen allows me to be able to work from home and be with our elderly dog.
