Hi there, my name is Iris and I'm an Italian freelance journalist based in Glasgow, UK. My writing focuses in particular on women's rights, bioethics, and travel but I'm open to working on multiple topics as my interests are varied. I have worked with multiple publications, among which you can find Culture Trip, HUCK Magazine, and Newsmavens. On top of Italian, my native language, I can speak English fluently and I have an intermediate level of French. I also speak a little German.
