Emma Pons. Barcelona, 1996. I’m currently studying Journalism and Politic Science in Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I have published reports in media like Vilaweb and El Punt Avui and I have done an internship in the Catalan News Agency, with contents featured in La Vanguardia, El Periódico and Diari Ara, among others. I like writing for different platforms and I believe especially in digital media, since it provides an opportunity to blend text, image and sound in the very same piece. “Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed”, George Orwell said, and for me, investigative journalism is the key of this idea.
Lucía Blanco. Born in Barcelona, in 1996. I study Journalism at Pompeu Fabra University. I’ve done an internship at the Catalan News Agency through which I have published content on El Punt Avui, El Periódico and La Vanguardia. I’ve published two digital articles at media VilaWeb (here the first and the second) and a printed one in Cetrencada magazine. In the audiovisual field, I’ve collaborated in a documentary broadcasted in Betevé TV. Since I love words in general, whether they talk about reality or fiction, I also like literature and I’ve studied some fields and authors at Escola Bloom (Barcelona). I understand this profession as a tool for social transformation and construction of critical sense.
We have shared this blog for more than two years now, a time in which we have learned a lot about the profession both in university and outside. Enjoy the read!
