The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
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!
