Thea Storøy Elnan is currently a cultural journalist in Aftenposten, one of Norway's biggest newspapers. She has worked in the media since 2014 and has been a news reporter and feature journalist. She has reported on #metoo and sexual harassment in Norway and took part in uncovering one of the biggest harassment scandals in the political sphere.

In her journalistic work Thea values quality, thorough research and giving space to the voices of those who aren't often listened to. One of her journalistic goals is to present complex, taboo topics in a way that readers can understand.
