Working as the IJNet Spanish Editor allows me to stay on top of today’s journalism trends, challenges and innovations. It has helped me improve my own work as a journalist, and allowed me to meet many colleagues from around the world. It has been a valuable opportunity to learn from others, and reflect about the profession and how it is changing.
My background: I have worked in journalism since 2010, during which time I’ve covered Uruguay, as both a reporter and editor. Following 11 years with the local daily newspaper, La Diaria, in 2021 I started working for the Uruguayan weekly newspaper, Búsqueda, where I now cover Congress. I also joined the CONNECTAS Hub in 2020, after working on an award-winning cross-border investigation called Chavismo INC. I started working at IJNet in 2013 and have witnessed the many changes the site has had since then.
I received my bachelor’s degree in journalism communication, with honors, at ORT University in Uruguay, in 2012. A year later, I began my work with ICFJ as the IJNet Spanish Editor, helping grow the site to what it is today.
