A BIT ABOUT ANASTASIA VAITSOPOULOU
The Full Story
“You see things; you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?”.
This quote by George Bernard Shaw stands very close to the way I approach life and my profession. People tend to identify with what they see or read. I became a journalist in order to document everything I observe, especially diverse, under-represented groups of people and dive deeper than the mainstream media. I like to think of words as a powerful tool that brings life into our way of thinking and hence, our acting.
Constantly observing the world around me, I strive to investigate under-reported stories and try to give people the -missing- piece of information, so that they have a complete and clear puzzle of the everyday social and cultural changes that take place in a local, national and international level. I am chiefly interested in human rights and social issues, but also show interest in cultural and crosscultural stories.
I consider journalism another form of art and when you put multiple layers upon it, such as images, videos, voice and sounds, you get my other highest excitement, a complex, complete, full of important information and beautiful visuals documentary.
I realized at a young age that writing was a lifelong passion of mine. Incorporating different elements into every piece I work on, I like to experiment with various styles and techniques. Considered bold and innovate, I’m never afraid to tackle any project or find new, creative ways to come up with something fresh and original.
