Reporter @ PressOne
Hunting trolls and government propaganda on social networks
About Codruța Simina
She is a journalist for PressOne based in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. She is an Alumni of US Department of State's International Visitors Leadership Program. In her 14 years of work, she has been covering politics, public spending, propaganda&cyber warfare, education and health. Codruța is also the author of two poetry books and thousands of articles, but her following mainly appreciates her short, unimportant posts on Facebook.
For the past years, she has been slowly shifting to features and interviews, treading on the thin red line between kindness and humor that is inside every human being, which she believes links us all together.
Codruța is 36 years old and in 5 years envisions herself fishing somewhere in the mountains, never catching any fish, but enjoying nature's view in silence.

About Andreea Ilisăi
Draw. Dance. Draw
Meph is the dance between sound and space in a visual form. Playing with drawings to create a world of her own she is inviting you to take a look inside. With a background in painting and graphic arts she is now illustrating posters, local events, album artworks, editorial, animation or logos. Working with fonts is still a mistery so she is usually drawing the text too.
