My name is Laura, I'm 28 years old and I'm a freelance journalist in the audio industry. I think life sounds better through headphones, don't you? With an English mother and a Bulgarian father, I have always been interested in issues of community and identity. Since I graduated from the Ecole supérieure de journalisme in Lille, I have collaborated with several radio stations (RMC, Europe 1, Radio Classique...) and I work for the podcast Transfert (produced by Slate). But at the end of 2021, I I went to Dublin to be the Irish correspondent for several French-speaking media (RFI, Radio France, RTBF, RTS and more).
