//Social communicator-Journalist

//September-November 2022



I am a social communicator and journalist graduated from the Universidad Javeriana, where I developed a special interest in narrative journalism. For my thesis I wrote the book of chronicles 'Historias de un pañuelo' (Stories of a handkerchief), with which I won the Círculo de Periodistas de Bogotá (CPB) Prize for the best undergraduate work. Subsequently, I did a master's degree in Literary Creation at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona).

I have worked in different media, especially digital, although acknowledging that the essence of journalism lies in the word. These include the newspaper El Tiempo, Wall Street International and the Anadolu Agency, Turkey's international news agency, where I worked as chief correspondent for Latin America.


El Boga Residence

I am currently working on my first book of short stories. In Mompox I have discovered a community with deep roots in the past, but also eager for any knowledge that will lead it to build a better future. In this sense, I have conducted several workshops with children, youth and adults in the community to explore writing as a creative and healing tool, especially for people with addictions or depression.
