Hola! My name is Andrea and I am a bilingual journalist/storyteller specialized in Latin American issues. I was born and raised in Mexico, and have lived in Montevideo and Madrid. Right now I am based in Washington D.C.
I love to connect and support innovative projects, work with new multimedia formats, and travel whenever I have the opportunity to do so.
Since I graduated from my MA in Latin American Studies from Georgetown University, I’ve worked at research centers, think tanks, start ups, and international organizations. I have shown a strong commitment to social justice. I’ve proudly worked for organizations like Nat Geo, UNESCO, IADB and Transparency International.
Additionally, I am also a part of the Transparency International’s Program for Young Journalists, where I cover issues related to corruption in Mexico.
As you might already know, I am passionate about social justice issues including gender. Last year I started a new project called Querida Viajera, a blog about travel and gender issues in Spanish.
I am always looking for stories to tell and I am always happy to meet new people and have a cafecito.
