Publishing

La Fábrica is a Spanish publishing house dedicated to art and photography. This internship was my first experience in the publishing world. It made me feel more comfortable working in a foreign language and my speaking and writing skills in Spanish improved.

Education

2014 - 2016

Master in Journalism
IHECS, Brussels

During these two years, my skills improved in writing, investigating and making information simple (and pleasant to read). The master sharpened my intuition in knowing what is a good subject. I specialised in photojournalism and magazine and worked for three months on a mook about agriculture in Belgium. The experience that marked me the most was the two months I spent in Bolivia shooting a 26 minutes documentary for my thesis. I was graduated with honours.

2011 - 2013

Bachelor in Communications
IHECS, Brussels

Thanks to this bachelor, I know the basics of how to set up a project, how to spread a message with the greatest impact as well as how to build a case to find sponsors. I learned to work in a team, under a short deadline. Graduated with honours.
