Clara Valmorisco

I was born in Madrid a month earlier than they were expecting me, which has always been my excuse to explain, for instance, my impatience. It took me a while to discover that there was life beyond “El Barco de Vapor”, but once I finally realised it I have never stopped reading or writing.

As far back as I can remember I have always been writing, as a way of communicating with my surrounding world and as a way of understanding it. And that is also what I have been trying to do ever since I opted for Journalism instead of History of Art. On all levels: corporate communication for AENOR and publishing houses like Apóstrofe and Cultivalibros, informative reporting for Público and laSexta and even public-address messages for El Corte Inglés and proofreading novels. At the moment I am writing articles for Nidos, the section on childrearing and work-life balance in eldiario.es and I am currently recycling myself with a master in digital marketing.

I am, but not necessarily in this order, inquisitive, thoughtful, chatty, analytical, contradictory, a mother since almost two years ago, shy though you wouldn’t believe it on a full-time basis, although I’m gradually getting over it.
