Flavia Pessoa Serafim


I am a PhD student in the School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds. My research explores the way Brazilian women writers represent, navigate, experience, understand, and negotiate their authorial identity in the context of digital culture. Regarding my professional experience, I have previously worked as a social media officer, as a trainee journalist for TV, online, and print channels, and as an ESL teacher. I am currently writing my first fiction book.
