Anna Rascouët-Paz

I've been called 'too French' in England, 'borderline American' in France and, in Colombia, people think I'm a foreigner until I open my mouth. Not that any of this matters in New York City, where I'm just another exile. I moved to the U.S. for love and to figure out new ways of being a reporter.

I used to work for Bloomberg News in London, first as a producer covering European markets, then as a print reporter covering sovereign debt and currencies. These days, I host the Annual Reviews Conversations audio series, in which I interview scientists at the top of their field. I was also the first editor-in-chief at Evening Edition.

This much I know: you can't connect dots if you have no dots to connect. Go gather them.
