The reportage about legacy of prostitution in Azerbaijan was first successes of Vusala Alibayli. She got the officially affirmation as reporter of Radio Liberty after this.  She is in 22 age and over three years she is working as journalist. Alibayli started her journalistic work in newspaper Sharg in 2005. Since 2006 she is working in Radio Liberty as reporter in social field and as host in youth programme.


        Journalism is life style for Alibayli. But she thinks it is different and more difficult than fashion style. For example, in fashion style you choose your dress by yourself. But in journalist life issues, which are part of story, choose how reporter should to be.


     “I always say, the time of journalist does not belong to her/him. There are a lot of barriers which are inevitable in this work for example to wait interviewer’s response or finish of meeting, action and ect. These all demand a time – Alibayli says.

But she considers that it is funny and pleasure to meet a lot of people and a lot of information.


      “Only great interest and love to this profession can make you to be journalist and not to be afraid of problems, Alibayli says.


        In 2008 Alibayli has graduated Baku State University, faculty of journalism. She thinks education level is not high there. That’s why Alibayli is planning to study abroad for getting more practice, to learn more about electron media and investigation journalism.


       “Interest in investigation journalism comes to me from my teacher Don Ray investigative journalist in USA. Don Ray was our trainer in International Centre of Journalism in 2007. He was always teaching us Dont embrace obstacles. It is more interesting and something like as physiology when you are talking with people about their problems and their life. You are learning humanness.


        She already won prize from Media Right Institution in 2006 for the story named “Give us information”. That’s about getting information from the officials. And second prize she got from the action “Dogru Dogusha Dogru”(Towards to the Right Birth) in 2007 for the story about Maternity Welfare Clinics. “ I’m also thinking of prise Pulitzer J” – Alibayli says.
