Journalist/ NGO´s Communications and Networking

  • Mexico, City

Throughout almost eleven years I have worked on communication and information strategies in international and local humanitarian aid  organizations ,  developing innovative strategies to generate the construction of networks with public and private sector for both the financing of social projects and the consolidation of inter-agency partnerships, creating awareness and understanding  of the value of public communication to support the operational goals. As a journalist, I have experience in different fields in media: written press , radio,  tv production  and specific campaigns on social networks.
