You mean "I know what buttons on the interface do" or "I can code complicated games/Make anything you want and ready to publish drawings" ?

Qualifications should really mean degrees you have earned, not skills as the next section is skills again which duplicates the qualifications section
The thank you note at the end doesn't seem like a good idea at all for this type of document?

The CV has a lot of problems, it would take a while to list them all, but the first one that jumps right out at you is:
"Be a productive member in society and produce high quality products and gain experience as a programmer and a developer."
"Creative Writing Expert"
By and large, I'd never consider calling myself an expert in anything without a qualification - for subjects like writing this is even more important, the field is thousands of years old, there are entire degrees dedicated to the minutiae of it. If the skill your claiming is in any way academic, it's good to back it up with an academic qualification.
On the topic of the use of the word expert, it's commonly accepted that you have applied 10,000 hours (commonly seen as 10 years) of deliberate, focused learning into any field to become an expert. There are exceptions to this, with fields that are inherently young like SEO, but the real experts in these fields often have over a decade of experience in a precursor field.
There's some great advice in the previous thread you posted about your CV.
