Journalism & Communication Strategy Instructor United States & Canada Coordinator
Kimberly Yanez is a seasoned Venezuelan Communications Specialist based in Canada. Her career has seen her transition seamlessly between the fast-paced world of beat journalism, where she covered everything from community issues to national crises, and the creative realm of copywriting, crafting compelling narratives for products and brands.
Whether reporting on the ground or developing engaging content strategies, her work is characterized by a commitment to storytelling that resonates with diverse audiences.
She holds a Joint University Master’s Degree in Journalism, Media, and Globalization from Aarhus University and the University of Amsterdam, a testament
to her academic pursuit of understanding the media’s intricate dance with society.
But beyond the degrees and accolades, it’s the stories that have shaped her – the whispered confessions of a community in crisis, the triumphant tales of brands
breaking barriers. Now, she pretty much loves passing her knowledge to a new generation of ethical writers at Harbinger’s Magazine.
