I began creating stories and ideas when I first learned to talk. I began discovering my passion for writing early on.

    Digital PR

    Indonesia - Tests: 1

    I've always been interested in communications at a global level. This is why I am currently taking a gap year in Indonesia to study the language and the culture and learn about how the message is disseminated in a collectivist society. However, my background is Social Sciences. Studying for my BA in Germany at an international university, taking a semester abroad in France and working in the online industry in UK, made me sensitive to cultural differences. Afterwards followed a MA in marketing, advertising and PR at University of Sheffield International Faculty while also working as a Digital PR in Romania, on the biggest local media group. Having a strategic mindset, I am passionate about new media and technology and their role in society. An innovative thinker/doer with an acute interest in campaigns management, future trends and personal development, I enjoy writing relevant content and deliver the right message to the right audience.
