Sirena Bergman

London-based journalist

Sirena Bergman is a journalist, blogger and campaigner. Commuting between Brighton and London, most of her time is spent on trains, scribbling furiously into a notepad and daydreaming about cake. Twitter-obsessed and caffeine-addicted, she’s always up for a debate.

She studied Journalism at Kingston University and now works as a content writer, as well as contributing comment pieces to a number of websites and blogging mostly about politics and media on Loud and Clear. Some of her favourite things include polka dotted anything, jazz on vinyl, The Observer and an extra-foam cappuccino on a sunny sunday and democratic general elections (in any country).
