iReporters: Tell us about yourselves!


We here at iReport think the world of our iReporters. It only makes sense that we would want the world to think the same as well.


We recently invited iReporters to introduce themselves and explain why they iReport in our video portrait assignment, and the submissions we’ve received so far have reinforced just how great our community is!


The daily freight train that runs through Murdock, Minnesota served as the background for Jannet Walsh's video portrait. She explained that her family has lived in the small town of Murdock, population 303, since the late 1800s. Walsh added that she iReports because it gives her a voice.


Neal Moore submitted his video portrait from Liberty Square in Taipei City, Taiwan. “I’m a storyteller, plain and simple,” he shared in his video. “I love sharing stories, and via iReport I love the challenge of sourcing, chasing, and chronicling stories from an international perspective for the benefit of a global audience.”


And Mark Joyella, digital producer for Erin Burnett's OutFront, was among several CNN staffers who introduced themselves with a video portrait to the iReport community. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, and invited iReporters to share their untold stories with the show, as “maybe that will be the next story that OutFront will be on.”


iReport would not be the awesome place it is without its keen and colorful iReporters. So, tell us why you iReport in our video portrait assignment, and introduce yourself to the world. But don’t delay! The deadline is tomorrow—Wednesday, November 30.


UPDATE: Good news! There's still time to send in your portrait. The deadline has been extended to Friday, December 9.
