What a terrific week on the TH!NK3 platform!

Next week, we begin our series of guest bloggers. First on the platform will be Ana-Maria Luca, a Romanian blogger and journalist from NOW Lebanon (seen in the photo below).
Ana-Maria also blogs at http://inorientulmijlociu.blogspot.com/, where her bio reads as follows:
I'm a journalist and I don't seem to be able to get out of this business. I started in 2001, writing for one of the best daily newspapers, Jurnalul National. I covered a few beats like Education and Environment. Then I did special reports, been the editor of monthly special issues on migration and Romanian communities in the world (not an easy job I tell you). Then switched to television in 2005, when I started as an international news writer for Antena1 and Antena3 Tv stations. I had my rebellion period, it lasted for a few months. I resigned and started to work for a tabloid. I nearly went out of my mind for a while and I decided that was not for me no matter how much money it involved. So, after writing and editing and doing the field work for a women's tv station, I went back to Antena3 news station in Bucharest. I wrote their foreign news for a while, and now I find myself in Beirut finishing an MA in International Affairs and writing for a leading English language publication, NOW Lebanon.
I'll wrap up now and wishing you all a great weekend!
