Meet Talia, our summer intern!


We're thrilled to introduce you to a new member of the iReport crew. Please welcome iReporter turned summer intern extraordinaire, Talia Day!


Talia shadowed our team twice during her other CNN internships and we’re happy to finally have her working alongside us this summer. We asked her to write a little bit about herself, so without further ado, we turn it over to her:


Hello! I’m Talia, a Savannah College of Art and Design student majoring in Television Producing and the new 2014 summer intern for CNN iReport. I have a passion for storytelling and an interest in all things digital, which is why I am super excited to be joining the iReport team!


Before coming to CNN, I worked as a freelancer for film/television and have had the privilege of traveling around the world. I’ve always been curious about different cultures and I almost always carry my camera (you never know when news will happen). My first love is documentary filmmaking and I am currently working to finish my latest film “Facing Freedom.” I know I will learn a lot from the iReport team and hope to become a vital part of the CNN iReport community. This is my third internship with CNN and I hope it’s the beginning of a long career with the network.


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

I desperately want to visit with someone about Drew Griffin's reporting on the VA scandal.  There's another horrible situation going on in nursing homes throughout the Country, our precious elders and disabled residents are suffering adverse events and preventable deaths and harm, all as recently reported by the Office of Inspector General.  Very little mention in the press.  I am an advocate on the national board of the National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term care, and hope to visit with national reporters as soon as possible.

Wellcome Talia!


I am reading of CNN iReports on the other side of the globe, Finland, Oulu, Kempele and Europe. My cat is writing (!) a blog about real things in Finland, school, politics, environments and culture.


It happens so many things in our family, that I can write a lot of it, too.


My photos at Flickr RundgrenR`s Photostream tell about Finland, well a little also of Sweden and Russia, Finland´s neighbour countries.
