Belinda Lopez is a producer for The State We're In.
Before working for Radio Netherlands Worldwide, Belinda spent a few transient years reporting from Australia, Indonesia, Europe and South America for several news outlets, including the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Free Speech Radio News and 2ser. Along the way she spent time with Colombian indigenous tribes, met former rebel soldiers in Aceh and reported from the United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen.
She began her career as a newspaper reporter for News Ltd. in Sydney, Australia; worked as a business sub editor for the Jakarta Globe, Indonesia and recently completed an economics-focused Masters degree for journalists as an Erasmus Mundus scholar in Europe.
She's delighted to work for a show that – like her - isn’t particularly fazed by geographical borders. Searching for untold stories from around the globe is what gets her up in the morning.
