Writer, human rights advocate 

 Exposing the truth at any cost is what drives me. 
As well as more personal pieces relating to my development as a writer which you can find on my blog, I publish articles on my topics of interest including human rights, immigration and freedom of press, and in time the page will also contain in-depth, investigative reports.

MY BIO

Virginie Houdmont - Writer, human rights advocate

profile2VH_2.jpg

I’m ardently inquisitive, driven and emphatic. Knowledge and justice are my driving force. Passionate about human rights, I believe that the world can be reshaped through informed, sensitized and engaged citizenship.

Through research and writing, I strive to shake readers out of their comfortable stupors by shining a light on facts that others go through great lengths to hide. I aim to reveal the human element behind the stories, the impact that events have on real lives if you will.  My focus is on the underreported stories which I look at from a different angle, addressing primarily human rights, refugees and immigration, freedom of press and of assembly and association and societal issues.

Open-minded, motivational and multilingual, I have experience in communications & writing across all sectors both in Europe and in South America. Fluent in 4 languages.

If you're looking for someone to collaborate or help you on a research project related to any of the above topics, don't hesitate to get in touch!
