Lucero Hernández García

Puebla, México


I was born in Tehuacán, Puebla. I studied a degree in Communication in Puebla, México. In 2018, I got a master’s degree in Communication and Digital Media. I’ve 15 years of experience in journalism between two cities: Guanajuato and Puebla. I currently work at El Popular newspaper, as information chief, so I define topics and coverage of investigative journalism with a group of reporters and correspondents. I’ve also the responsability of the digital area in the company. My interests in journalism are about data journalism and visualization, to understand databases for investigative journalism jobs and get readers interested in them. For me, data journalism and visualization are important to aim for, even in regional journalism. I’m interesed in two topics, because in my city these are serious problems: feminicides and huachicol or stolen gasoline. I like economic journalism too, the rule: follow the money.

About me: I really love the theater and alternative music. One of my favourite writers is Irvine Welsh. I like to buy and learn from journalism books. One of my goals is to work in communication research and social media. I participaded in Verificado 2018 project where different media in Mexico worked against fake news iduring the elections, so I want to continue working on how fake news influences readers.
