From an early age, Simona Stankovska demonstrated an acute interest in press and media affairs. "When I was 14, my English teacher told me that I'd be a journalist when I grew up. She was eager to tap into that potential. She thought I possessed a unique style."
Despite the encouragement, Simona didn't envisage a future in journalism. Her cynicism largely stemmed from a dislike of the British tabloids: lurid publications that peddled garish stories of scandal and sleaze. "Trashy, sensationalist rubbish," she quips. "My whole idea of journalism was informed by the papers my father read. Reportage in certain publications left a lot to be desired." LinkedIn
