Mar Moreno always wanted to write in a newspaper. Therefore, the day he received the letter of admission of the Faculty of Information Sciences of the Complutense University was one of the happiest in his life, as always was responsible for telling his many friends. He fulfilled his dream when in 1992 he moved to Madrid to study journalism and, after the race, he dedicated himself to this profession with the passion he put into life. In 2013, it came to an end in SModa– fashion magazine of EL PAÍS-, where I worked as editor-in-chief. This Sunday, he died of a heart attack in Jódar (Jaén) at 44 years old.
Born in Huelma (Jaén) on April 27, 1974, Moreno was the youngest of four brothers. His parents ran a tapas bar there, El Menchis, so in the town it was always Mar 'la del Menchis'. Its childhood passed in the classrooms of the school and the public institute of the locality, where it emphasized like a very awake student. "She was the only student who could explain to me the phrase 'The teaching system is the teaching of the system,' recalled one of her secondary school teachers.
After graduating in Journalism in 1996, he did an internship in Change 16 -Where she met her husband, photographer and writer Juan Pelegrín-, and joined Hachette Filipacchi in 1997 as editor of Teleprogram. In 2005 it happened to The Ana Rosa Magazine, where she served as chief editor until she was hired by SModa.
An indefatigable worker who could not erase the smile from her lips -not even in the closing days-, Mar Moreno was an off-road journalist who in recent years had specialized in interviews with characters from the world of letters, art , music and cinema. For his pen have passed in recent years the most important characters in world culture, from Isabel Allende to Bianca Jagger, through Blanca Suarez, Manuel Rivas or Elena Poniatowska. In the next issue of SModa An interview will appear to the mayor Manuela Carmena. He said he liked to interview the women he wanted to be like. Moreno was committed to the cause of women, both in Spain and in Senegal, where she had worked as a volunteer with the NGO Xaley.
Married and with a seven-year-old son, Moreno obtained the recognition of his countrymen, who named her a pre-event for his parties a few years ago. In his speech, of course, he recalled that his passion for journalism came to him from a young age. "Life is like riding a bicycle! To keep your balance you must keep moving"(Life is like riding a bicycle.) To keep your balance you have to keep moving," he tweeted long ago. Thus he lived always, moving, with restlessness and a curious look.
