Julia Noemy Gavarrete is a Salvadoran freelance journalist specialized in political issues, violence and its impact on children and vulnerable communities. In 2021, she joined the El Faro newsroom. Since 2011, she has been part of political and social sections of Salvadoran newspapers, such as Diario El Mundo and GatoEncerrado Magazine. In 2015, she started collaborating and supporting investigations carried out by foreign media like CNN, The New Yorker, AlJazeera, USA Today and Univision Noticias. One of her main objectives as an independent journalist is to open space for a form of storytelling not fully explored in El Salvador: giving a human face to the problems of the country. She graduated with a degree in Social Comunications at Universidad Centroamericana “José Simeón Cañas” (UCA), with post-graduate studies in Latin American politics (Cuba), peace journalism in conflict zones (Israel) and solidarity economies (Mexico).
Gavarrete was an event speaker at the Dialogue.
