I am a lucky girl! I get to talk to different people daily and have the privilege of getting to know them and tell their stories – what makes them happy, what affects them, the lot! I get to debate, to question, to delve deeply into issues, and all that as a means of serving and informing the wider community through a daily 1-hour radio show – in-language! And I get to do this with a group of other caring and dedicated producers and journalists. Shaping the daily editorial agenda and tone of our Spanish-language news service is a challenge and an honour like no other.
I am deeply committed to SBS’s purpose and reason for being. As a CALD migrant who came to Australia as an adult, I feel SBS and NITV have been fundamental to my settlement process and my professional development. I couldn’t imagine Australia without them!SBS and NITV have given me the opportunity to tell the harshest, the saddest and the most beautiful and inspiring stories, from a perspective you wouldn’t find anywhere else (a couple of times, from my very own, personal experience).
The way I have seen Indigenous and migrant communities respond to our stories, to our authenticity, give me a purpose to strive for better every day.
My latest career highlight has been leading the SBS Spanish team through the pandemic crisis. I was deeply moved by our team’s generosity and staunch commitment through the toughest days. We have been working incredibly hard, been under a lot of stress, as months of breaking news have rolled on. In the darkest hours, we were there for each other and our audience.
Doing my best means different things every day.
Thank you! We exist for you. Keep us accountable.
