Who I am: Alexandra Nistoroiu
Where I live: Romania
What I do: Curiosity led me to become a science journalist. I wanted to better understand the world and my place in it, and to help the readers do the same.
Why science journalism: One of my favorite things is being able to pick the brains of people smarter than me: researchers, doctors, experts in their field, and learning from them. My work always allows me to get new, fresh perspectives and see the world from another point of view.
Suggestions for newcomers:
- Follow your curiosity wherever it takes you.
- Don’t be afraid to ask questions, there are no stupid questions.
- Trust your gut. If something feels fishy in any way, do a quadruple check. As long as you do it ethically, there are no right and wrong ways to tell a story.
