Who I am: Charlotte Koldbye | YouTube
Where I live: Denmark
What I do: “I am a science journalist by serendipity. I am an extremely curious person, and when I had the chance to do a radio show about neuroscience it just felt right. I could just ask researchers questions and they would answer me. I could channel my curiosity and get paid for it”
Why science journalism: Most researchers have a common goal – to gain insight. To ask questions and dig for answers. Science never gets boring, everything, literally everything is interesting if you dig deep enough.
Suggestions for newcomers:
- Just do it. Don’t hold back. You don’t have to be a physicist to write about physics. Write, do podcast or videos!
- You will learn as you go along. Be a loyal ambassador for your audience.
- Put science into perspective so it makes sense for them.
