Meet Maggie, our spring intern

 

We’re excited to introduce you to a new member of the iReport crew! Our spring intern, Maggie Blaha, left snowy New Jersey for sunny Atlanta, or so she thought.

 

During this week’s rare snow and ice, Maggie has already been busy contributing to our breaking news coverage. We asked her to write a little bit about herself now that things are thawing out. iReport community, meet Maggie:

 

Hi! I'm Maggie, and I'm very excited to be joining the iReport Team this spring. I am a graduate student in Concordia University's Master of International Studies program, and I have completed most of my coursework in China. Living in China was an eye-opening experience but not one I would care to relive. It did give me a lot to write about, though.

 

I guess I could best be described as a romantic hipster. I like being poor and traveling and doing what I want. I'm one of those people who thinks she was born in the wrong decade, which explains my distaste for ebooks, love of record players and unhealthy obsession with “Downton Abbey.” I have my heart set on becoming a journalist and am looking forward to learning all I can from Team iReport.

 

Say hello to Maggie in the comments below! We’re thrilled to have her as part of the team.

HELP! How do I turn off all the notification emails I am receiving for every single new iReport that is submitted? I already tried by going to my Stuff tab but there's nothing there to stop the emails.

Very thrilling but creative description, imbued in true feeling on alien nature of a foreign land. Thanks and blessing for Maggie.

Welcome Maggie!!

 

I am from a different era, but prefer vinyl over CD's also.  It sounds like you already are a journalist now.  You have arrived with a great gig at CNN.  I'm sure you'll make the most of it!!!!
