Valeria Schapira bared her intellect
Buenos Aires, January 4, 2012
At what age did your vocation starts? Already at six, seven years old, writing goodies. At thirteen, fourteen, I decided I was going to be a journalist and started going with my recorder to make interviews on the national rock musicians: Calamaro, Lerner …. By that time I said I was going to be a writer and my best friend would be my secretary. That was the beginning of what would become a job and a way of life.
How were the first steps? Articles for scholarly journals, conducting acts at school … publishing poems in children’s supplements in newspapers. At seventeen I made my first steps on the radio in Rosario City. Then I started working on the cable news in my town and parallel I began studying Social Communication and English translator, which ended almost simultaneously.
Where do you go artistically? I do not like to pigeonhole. Right now I’m writing fiction. I just sold a Mexican TV series and I’m developing formats for TV, while one of my books will be adapted for film. I’m also writing columns for various magazines interviewing celebrities, working in media, etc.
