I write about culture, art and literature, because I do not understand the world without books and poetry.

When I was a little girl I used to isolate with myself reading tales, now I could spend hours writing them. I think we need to give voice to artistic creators, they usually have a unique perspective of reality and can challenge things that we usually take as a fact.

I also like to write about economic issues from a social point of view, telling the human stories and the protagonists behind them: immigrants, entrepreneurs, refugee families ... From Philadelphia, Barcelona, Moscow, Beijing, Myanmar… every human history can help us to have a more open and global vision of the world.
