Journalism
May - June 2016
24h01 (Brussels)

This Belgian magazine represents all I love in journalism: high-quality writing, independence, high-level ethics and desire to open the reader's eyes to unknown realities. I spent two months within 24h01's redaction as an intern and wrote a long format article for their website. I was also in charge of the social networks feeds.

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
Master in Journalism
2014 - 2016
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.

Bachelor in Communications
2011 - 2013
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.
