Journalism is the term used for the work of journalists in the press, online media or the radio. A journalist collects and assesses information and creates posts for press, radio and television. Usually, journalists publish matters of general, cultural, political or economic signification.
As most journalistic posts are for created for public purposes, they may influence the public opinion and therefore have to be written in a neutral form. There is no predetermined specification in the journalism branch. Therefore, journalists specialize in a certain topic during their career, such as sport or politic.
Journalism is a liberal profession, which means everybody who is working in the press, radio or online media can call themselves a journalist. Because of that reason it is not possible to find the study program, which prepares for that profession.

Your coordinator in Peru
Donny is Dutch and since the end of 2008 he lives in Cusco, Peru. He worked at a Spanish school and volunteered at an internship organization in the centre of Cusco. He is responsible for the marketing, communications, the website and online sales. He loves travelling, "it makes you richer", he said. "It’s an escape to another world, far away from your daily live. Seeing beautiful countries and meeting interesting people charges the battery for the rest of the year." Every year he took a month to travel with his backpack in countries in Africa and South America. Until he finally came back to Peru where he met Yuliana, his wife. From that moment, travelling became living in another country. "I now see what I didn’t see travelling!"
