Greetings from London!

Sarah Brown at her new desk at CNN

 

Hello everyone, my name's Sarah Brown and I'm the new producer for CNN iReport, based in London, England. I'm absolutely thrilled to be joining such a talented team and looking forward to sharing your stories with CNN and the wider world!

 

I come to CNN after more than a decade of working in participatory journalism, first at the BBC where I specialised in Middle East content, then at Al Jazeera English, where I worked in Qatar and then Washington DC, U.S to cover the 2008 US election. After that I went into the non-profit sector for a while, working on digital advocacy for Oxfam and the Women's Resource Centre. I'm interested in using new journalistic platforms to tell your stories, which means I already feel right at home here at iReport!

 

All of which brings me to the here and now with CNN. The iReport team felt it was of paramount importance to expand their amazing work internationally, and this is where I come in. I'm looking to expand the wonderful iReport community globally, bringing in the best, most exciting, most pertinent content from across the world.

 

And that's where you come in. We want to hear from your part of the world; what stories are interesting where you are? What would you like to show us and the iReport community? Which parts of the world would you like to hear more from? We're lucky to have a great story to kick off with - the Olympic and Paralympic games in London - so how about we start with that? We're looking for the sights and sounds of the Olympics, from the games themselves in London to whatever you're doing to participate in your corner of the world. Send in your iReports or drop me a message here. It would be great to hear from you!

Hello Sarah, greetings from Berlin. I am fighting already three years for CNN iReport International. I hope you´ll have great time in London.

Dear Sarah Brown, Indeed I am happy about your ireport in this page wherein you have more interested to new stories around the world. And also I like your Journalism profession which enrich knowledge in all fields. I am V.P.Thirumugam Mallar from Tamil Nadu state, India and my mother tongue is Tamil. But I can speak and write in English well and good. I am having a lot of amazing / astonishing information on our real history of the world. Because of, the present day world history was not all true. There are a lot of information concealed intentionally in India. Hence I seek your support to expose them to the world people as you are the Journalist. Hence I request you to send your mail id for further contacts in this regard. I have given below furnished my email id for your future correspondence.

Sarah, I would like post iReports with historical backround with Olympic Games for instance Berlin Olympics 1936 or Munich Olympics 1972. Is it ok for The Olympic assignment? Or do you prefer what is happening now?

Chicago passed a law making illegal to video tape CPD.Isnt how we learned about Rodney King.Is this a violations of constitution rights.How about infuencing the court to convince people without do process or hearing to save time.How about CPD working on ticket quoter to aquire more money for the city.Only in Chicago where women prisons were stackled while giving birth.Back to the 60s
