About the editor
Crossroads editor Sueli Brodin:
I was born in Brazil and grew up in Pakistan, Japan and France. After completing my studies in English literature, I spent a year abroad at Rutgers University in the United States. I met my Dutch husband in Israel and finally seem to have settled down in these small and cosy low lands where I have been living since November 1991.
I started working for the European Journalism Centre in Maastricht in February 1997, first as a project assistant and later as a freelance writer and editor. I have been contributing to Crossroads since its first issue in December 2001.
Apart from editing Crossroads, I produce the European Journalism Centre’s daily Media News digest and write a weekly blog for the Maastricht Region website.
