Journalist

Location icon Lithuania

Starting from the present, I am journalism master student in the University of Groningen. Together with my classmates we have created few online platforms The Spoke and Zeitwurst to publish our work. Pieces I have produced varies from written online news articles and features, to radio and video pieces. During our 1 hour radio program, I was selected to be one of the presenters and was responsible for writing the script. My interest areas are longer in dept articles, features or podcasts about social issues and culture.
Going back to the past, I obtained my bachelor diploma in Scandinavian studies and Norwegian language at Vilnius University. I also spent one year on exchange in Oslo University. During my study period I was writing articles for various university publications about cultural and scientific events, and theater reviews.
