Correspondent

The crash of the Concorde right after its departure from Charles de Gaulle airport in July 2000 marked the real beginning of my TV career. I was in Paris, starting my first work as a correspondent that lasted for 6 years. During that time I had the chance to cover other big international news, such as the shock after the extreme right wing leader Jean Marie Le Pen passed to the 2nd round of the Presidential elections, the death of Yasser Arafat in a parisian hospital and  the riots in the marginalized suburbs where the French young people coming from inmigrant families have less chances to progress than the white ones.

 

I quit my correspondent life abroad for 9 years in order to work as a news anchorwoman in the Basque Country. But during those years, as time went by, I felt I still needed to go back meet the world, learn and tell what was going on. This is why in 2015 I moved to Beijing to work as a correspondent for Asia. It was a short but intense experience, marked by the first pollution red alert ruled in Beijing, coinciding with the United Nations climate change conference in Paris. That year I also covered the first relatively free elections in 25 years in Myanmar, where the people voted massively for Aung San Suu Kyi, awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize.

Since 2000 I have worked as a special reporter all over the world covering important news such as the tsunami in Asia in 2004, the terrorist attacks in London in 2005 or Obamas´s first wining Presidential elections in 2008.
