'cause experience matters
My strong background in Psychology and Social Sciences has hugely influenced my career as a Journalist. I can look at the same subject in many different ways, exploring its layers and challenging the assumptions around it. That’s my greatest joy as an Editor and Writer - to create thought-provoking content that sheds light on the traps, gaps and contradictions of social conventions.
“Everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self- doubt.”
― Sylvia Plath
