Irene Caselli is the founder of The First 1,000 Days, a fully reader-supported newsletter that covers early childhood.

After working for a decade as a foreign correspondent in Latin America, in 2019 she became the world’s only First 1,000 Days correspondent for The Correspondent, a transnational member-funded journalism site. When The Correspondent shut down in December 2020, she launched her own newsletter.

Irene has been awarded fellowships by the IWMF, the European Journalism Centre and the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma. She speaks six languages, and is now learning Greek.
