As a bilingual journalist in the UK, I translated news from Spanish to English for +2million monthly readers in 200 countries.
With Spanish as my first language, I interviewed activists and civil rights leaders throughout Latin America as a freelance political journalist for Gay Star News.
As I was also completing my Master’s Degree at the same time, I used my developing grasp of politics to engage the various groups from the LGBT in Latin America.
Through these relationships, I was able to translate breaking news and exclusive stories from Spanish for publishing in English, often breaking with stories mainstream media were not able or willing to broadcast.
I diversified my writing style by commissioning myself stories in different departments, from news interviews with politicians to lifestyle travel articles, eventually leading to my appointment as Travel Editor.
