Correspondent, Honduras & Central America

My name is Rebecca E. Schwimmer Rodríguez, I am a journalist focused on Honduras and Central America. My mother is Honduran and my father is American. He has lived in the country for more than 30 years. I am close to graduating with a degree in journalism from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras and I have had the opportunity to work for a local digital newspaper in Tegucigalpa that has encouraged me to cover issues of politics, health, migration, entrepreneurship and culture , one of the areas that I am most passionate about. My inclinations are to know the dynamics and preservation of culture in its different manifestations, art, cultural heritage and photography. I would like society and Honduran authorities to recognize the importance of identity construction, artistic appreciation and sensitivity and the development that this knowledge can promote in a nation.
