Communications Director, Encuentros 2015
Born in The Hague, in the Netherlands, to Chilean parents, Victoria lived in Santiago de Chile between 1996 and 2010. She studied journalism at Universidad Diego Portales and returned to the Netherlands to complete a master’s degree in intercultural communication at the University of Utrecht. She worked as radio editor for one of the Dutch public broadcasters, NTR. Victoria’s master thesis was developed in this same company, where she analized diversity initiatives, investigating if both NTR professionals and programming could adequately reflect the country’s diversity.
By growing up between Chile and the Netherlands, Victoria developed a special interest in strategies for cross-cultural communication in various fields. This has also been an important motivation for her to join Encuentros 2015’s communications team.
