Print Journalist @PetizaGavarrete

Julia Noemy Gavarrete is a Salvadoran freelance journalist specialized in political issues, violence and its impact on children and vulnerable communities. Since 2011, she has been part of political and social sections of Salvadoran newspapers, such as Diario El Mundo and Diario1.com. In 2015, she started supporting investigations carried out by foreign media like CNN, The New Yorker, The Guardian, BBC, AlJazeera and Univision. One of her main objectives as an independent journalist is to open space for a form of storytelling not fully explored in El Salvador: giving a human face to the problems faced by a country full of stories. She graduated from Social Comunications at Universidad Centroamericana "José Simeón Cañas" (UCA), with post graduated studies in Latin American politics (Cuba), Peace journalism in conflict zones (Israel) and solidarity economies (Mexico).
