Please welcome another newbie to the Social Media team at Oxford University Press, Estefania Ospina, who joined the gang in June 2016, just two months ago, as an OUPblog Deputy Editor and Social Media Marketing Coordinator! You can learn more about Estefania below.
When did you start working at OUP?
6 June 2016.
What was your first job in publishing?
Oxford University Press is my first publishing job; although, having previously worked at Barnes & Noble, I’ve been exposed to being surrounded by books and most importantly, book lovers.
What’s the most enjoyable part of your day?
I love that everyday is different, even as I’m beginning to feel like I’m getting a handle on things, I still find myself learning something new every day, and I enjoy and welcome the challenge!
What is the strangest thing currently on or in your desk?
A lot of space. Now I’m thinking I have to decorate my desk, maybe get a plant. Stay tuned.
What’s your favourite book?
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry because he reminds us that, “all grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.”

What is your favorite word?
I just decided that it’s papaya.
What will you be doing once you’ve completed this Q&A?
After editing a post for the OUPblog, I’ll schedule it and then Tweet about it.
What is your most obscure talent or hobby?
I’m fluent in two languages, which is not very obscure, but I’m also conversant in two other languages. My first language was Spanish, English my second; I have always loved the French language and was determined to learn it and finally, I have been practicing Portuguese for over a year and hope to be able to hold a coherent conversation with a native speaker soon (fingers crossed)!
What is the longest book you’ve ever read?
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (fun fact: its 766 pages).
What is your favorite animal?
Horses. They seem wise.
