Marina Chentsova Eckman

IJNet Russian Editor

My work with IJNet makes me feel that what I do is important and that my job makes a difference for Russian-speaking journalists worldwide. Over the last decade, I have learned a lot about different aspects of journalism and met many dedicated and brave professionals. I admire IJNet's power to help journalists across the world (in my case, most of them live on almost the opposite side of the globe).

My background: I started working for IJNet as a copy editor in 2011 and then as an editor, translator and community manager in 2012. My favorite part is working with Russian-speaking journalists from different parts of the former Soviet Union.

I graduated from Ural State University with a major in philology, and for more than 30 years I worked as a teacher.
