José Luis Salinas, a UEM graduate and current editor of the newspaper 'New Spain', has been named a finalist in the financial journalism category of Diageo's Young and Brilliant Awards 2011.
According to José, this award "honors the work I do throughout the year. It's very hard work but also exciting, if there is something incredible about journalism it's that it lets you experience firsthand what normal people don't have the opportunity to see. I receive this honor as recognition of my work and it will push me to continue."
The Diageo Young and Brilliant Awards recognize the work of those young professionals that carry out rigorous financial journalism, based on serious and responsible research, and that speak the truth and promote the public interest.
