In addition to her hosting duties, she also produces reports and special coverage. She worked as a war correspondent in Ukraine, having made three visits since the onset of the large-scale Russian invasion. She also traveled to the Darién jungle, situated on the border between Panama and Colombia, to cover the most dangerous migration route in the continent. She assumed the role of a special envoy during recent elections in both Chile and Brazil. In 2019, she covered Evo Morales’ departure from power in Bolivia. Throughout these years, a substantial portion of her journalistic endeavors has been focused on the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. In 2019, she was present at the Colombian-Venezuelan border during the unsuccessful attempt to deliver humanitarian aid.
