  1. I have found her to be extremely competent in __________ areas by exemplifying her creativeness through many challenges she has taken upon herself.

    The phrasing is strange to me. Something is missing. What kinds of areas? The sentence also seems unusually vague. Are you following it with specifics so the reader knows exactly what you mean?

    No comma is needed so far.
