The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
We’ve got a new face on the iReport team! Cydney Fisher is our fall intern and we’re delighted to have her working with us.
Cydney joined the site in 2012 and has been an active iReporter since then. We asked her to pen a short bio introducing herself to the community:
I am a senior majoring in Comparative Women’s Studies at Spelman College. Finding the journalism world quite intriguing, I am soaking up all I can to prepare myself for a career in journalism. I try to be a versatile one-woman journalist, and have delved into anchoring and reporting as well as some behind the scenes work as a cinematographer for the local student run station, Tiger Television, at Morehouse College, our brother school next door.
But, my real passion is photography. I currently serve as the photography editor for the Maroon Tiger Newspaper at Morehouse College, and I’m the only student photographer for the Office of Student Life. Previously, I was a photography fellow for non-profit organization Outdoor Nation. In my free time, I have made it my mission to document the world around me with my camera. I am super excited to be an iReport intern, and am eager to learn as much as I can about all things CNN.
Be sure to say hello to Cydney! If you’re lucky, you may just get a call from her asking about your iReport.
Welcome aboard! Wishing you all the best during this learning period.
Welcome Cydney and hoping your Internship Journey will be a happy and learning experience. Best to you. :)
Good morning Cydney. My name is Lamar. I am twenty two years old and I am a student at Nevada State College. I uploaded an iReport video yesterday. I emailed the iReport asking them to show my video on the CNN newsroom. My question to you is could you possibly speak to your supervisor and ask them if they can show my video I uploaded on the CNN Newsroom. I feel that my message is important and if it is viewed by a mass audience,I believe it will encourage Americans to help end this shutdown. Thank you. Have a great day.
Thanks, I've noticed that when I edit the ireports I post, and space the paragrapgs, the end result gets all thrown together with no breaks for paragraphs...is this a glitch?
Hello Cydney, nice to have a fresh black face on ireport and I wish you all the best young lady. I am a homemaker now since 1998. Not by choice, but illness. I have a daughter who is 23years old and since giving birth to my grandson 12/04/2011, having two three major surgies and hopefully she will be able to return back to Norfolk State University Jsn 2014.
Great! I have similar interests and will enjoy watching you succeed. Keep going...don't let anything stop you!

Welcome, Cydney :)
Hello Cydney! What an amazing opportunity you have with CNN. Sincere Congratulations! I see that you have a passion for photography, as do I. Are there any stories you want to report on that could involve your own photography?
Hi Cydney Had an email from you the other day. I am glad to put a face to the name. Nice to meet you!
Cidney please to meet you I am concerned about today Wednesday 16th 2013 Why if we are going to solve the problem channel stations are celebrating and saying they los they won they did not get nothing they got all This is not a game and the sadest thimg about this is that the promoters or motivators are our media Please I saw two or three channels saying those words when the senate reached an agreement at midday now it is almost 3pm and things have changed it seems that senators or congressmen saw those reporters saying those victory excamation words and everything went back to the same I suggest please this is not a game or a competition if this problem is solved evrebody wins nobody loses but if chanel stations keep putting fire on both parties everybody is going to lose the government has to be open and the media has to motivate both parties to open it how giving good exclamation words to both parties and forgetting all negative words which can motivate our congressman and senators to keep separated from each other and not to reach an agreement to open the government

Welcome Cydney! Congrats on the internship and good luck!
I have found the journalism field sort of disappointing. The American jouralist seems to be alittle shy when it comes to reporting the truth.
Welcome and best wishes for a wonderful career!
Hi how do I post some thing from YouTube
Hi Cydney nice meeting you
Congratulations Cydney. Wishing you a wonderful learning experience.
Would your female commentators stop referring to Hayat Boumeddiene as "the young lady". At 26, she is no longer young and she is definitely not a lady
