I never said to myself: I screwed up. What happened? is proof that journalism touches on sensitive subjects and that we need to explore them more than ever, and I have been touched by the support I have received, publicly and privately. I already knew it, but I became even more aware that it happened to others before me and that it will happen again“, she explained.
