Journalist

Location icon United States of America

I am currently a senior at Emerson College, majoring in Journalism. I have been working for the Boston Post Gazette, a weekly newspaper based in the North End of Boston for the past year: reviewing and editing submissions and submitting articles myself. I also interned for Eco News Network, an online news source about all things ecological. This experience allowed me to understand online news networks and how to adapt writing in this venue, which allows us to reach millions of people. I am a firm believer of the internet as an education and enlightening tool that can be used across nations and cultures.

My interest in journalism started at an early age. I was born and half raised in Venezuela, a country where the media is under constant attack by the official government. The Inter American Press Association has raised its concern over violations of human rights and limitations in freedom of speech. As in many other countries, journalist play a protagonist role in shaping the events.
