    Jimena Antoniello Ligüera, PhD

    Jimena Antoniello Ligüera, PhD is an Uruguayan writer and screenwriter who has lived in Montevideo, Madrid and now Los Angeles, California. From her years of studying and developing her writing, as well as from the experiences in places she has lived and worked, Dr. Ligüera realizes that there are as many different voices in literature as countries or regions where writers develop their skills.  And all of them are unique.  All of them intriguing and colorful.  She has learned (or at least she is always trying to do so) a new perspective of the world and its stories.  Magnificent heterogenic forms of communication rising from experiences throughout communities’ art and literature.  In her writing, Jimena tries to make visible all these influences in a more casual way and chat with the reader instead of just narrate, making it more personal. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, a Master’s in Screenwriting, and a PhD in Ancient History.  Her terminal degree is the result of her fascination with mankind’s beliefs and ways of describing the intangible. She has been published in literary magazines, as well as in the academic field (literature, film reviews, and translations her narratives in other languages,) and a recipient of awards in prose and poetry.  She trusts her work in aaduna will create a new opportunity to share her work in the English language and reach different readers.  And it should be purposely noted that Jimena’s passion for and dedication to screenwriting is a major influencer on her current writing career.
