I have always lived surrounded by books and films. As a child I plunged into reading stories that made me go where the imagination could not take me and spent the afternoons watching old films and new ones in the wonderful cinema of my village, which is like a small Cinema Paradiso. I grew up full of joy, in La Garriga, a small town near Barcelona. I was always free and doing what I wanted. Surrounded by love, women fighters and people who loved me and taught me the little – but important- things in life. I studied Audiovisual Communication from my passion for my love affair with cinema and for communicating, because “the more you communicate, the more the passion grows” as John Milton said. And there, I discovered another passion, the radio. I worked many years in a bookstore, and I studied a Masters in Literary Edition. My professional experience has been related to Marketing, Corporate communication and Social Media during the last 8 years. Little to do with my real vocation and my principles. As an amateur I was involved in what I was really passionate about, which are social issues. But there was something in me telling me: “find your way”.
I am a Citroën 2CV 6 Special from 1983. I have lived all my life in Mallorca, between Sencelles and Santa Eugenia. In 2014 a young girl from Santander took me to Palma de Mallorca, what a change! Accustomed to the rural atmosphere of the interior of Mallorca, in the city I was revolutionized. Everyone looked at me. Everyone was smiling at me. They even took pictures with me. What I liked most about my new owner is that she took me everywhere with her. And almost every day we were on the road.
Since she told me that we were going to leave Mallorca I am excited. I want to discover new landscapes, new experiences, and yes, maybe they say I’m too old, that many of my fellows do not live that much. But my traveling mates will take care of me. And I will take them until the very end of the world.
I am Ana Vega, journalist, with a natural and inevitable attraction for Lebanon and every apparently minority conflict that could be extrapolated to the rest of the world. I was born in Santander, I used to live in Barcelona and until recently I spent most of my time in Mallorca. However, the most important is not where, but why. As Henry Miller said, “our destination’s never a place, but a new way of seeing things”. I studied Journalism, Humanities and a Master on Publishing at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Since I decided to start this adventure I used to work on Online Marketing, full-time for a company and as a freelance. I also participated on the launching of a start-up: Nubis Marketing. I wish that days had more hours to accomplish everything I dream in the little hours I sleep.
Send to hell every stupid society, rot in lies, of Northamerican capitalism and imperialism… Revolution is inescapable.
To fate I am grateful for three gifts: having been born a woman, of low class and oppressed nation. And the turbid azure of being three times a rebel.
