As a Communications Officer, Lorena is responsible for developing and executing successful communication strategies for external customers and stakeholders. She optimizes website content, digital newsletters, print periodicals, and social media from numerous projects. She maintains consistency in terms of voice, branding, messaging, and the frequency with which the digital media is updated.
While pursuing a BA in Journalism at King Juan Carlos University in Madrid, Lorena started advocating for animal rights for three years, aiming to elevate the subject onto the political agenda. After graduating and working as Journalist for some newspapers and communication agencies, such as The New York Times Style Magazine Spain, she relocated to the UK to specialize through a MA in International Relations and Global Communications at Manchester Metropolitan University. During this period, she assumed the role of Community Manager at the International Emergency Drone Organization.
Lorena arrived in Brussels in 2023 through the Robert Schuman scholarship at the European Parliament’s Directorate-General for Communication. It was during this time that she recognized the significance and potential that the European project offers to Member States and the global community, with a focus on prioritizing healthcare.
Unfortunately, we all know someone directly or indirectly who has experienced this disease. While I may not have a background in health, I strongly advocate for the significance of prioritizing research. From what I can understand, opportunities for improvement arise whenever there is political will.
