As a journalist, I entirely devoted my life to inform about chronic illnesses and disability, and being personally affected by it not only fueled my passion for this topic but, above all, made me a more empathic journalist and a better human being.
Besides my journalistic work, I see it as my duty to be an advocate for people with the same conditions and to fight for a change by speaking up publicly.
I am fully aware that being a journalist and activist at the same time might create a bias, which is why I constantly reflect on my work, as well as debate my role with peer journalists.
