Gabija Steponenaite, or just Gabi, is Deputy Editor at HQB Media. She is an international journalist with experience reporting for several national and local newspapers in Lithuania and the US. She grew up in Soviet Lithuania, when international travels were severely restricted. Her childhood curiosity and eagerness to visit foreign countries grew into a determination to become a journalist and report on different cultures. For over two decades, she lived in the US and wrote stories that matter from the humanist point of view. A year ago Gabi relocated to the UK, where she continues to learn about its people and culture. In her free time, she creates abstract watercolours, loves reading mystery novels and sipping berry smoothies on the beach.
