Taisa Sganzerla · November, 2014

I'm the News Editor of Global Voices. I help manage our team of newsroom editors and ensure our stories meet the highest possible journalistic standards.

I used to be a reporter, mostly filing from Brazil, but also from Southeast Asia and Europe.

You can most often find me on Twitter ranting about something.
