Meet Amanda, our 2015 spring intern

/#

We're excited to introduce you to a new member of the iReport crew. Please welcome Amanda Jackson!

 

Amanda has only been here four days, but she’s already vetted a bunch of newsy snow iReports and we’ve learned she has a soft spot for sunset photos. Here’s more from Amanda herself:

 

Amanda Jackson is a senior at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. She will be graduating in May with her Bachelor’s of Arts in communications with a media emphasis and a public relations minor. She graduated from Del Mar College in 2013 with a double degree, Associates of Arts in Journalism and Associates of Arts in Public Relations/Advertising.

 

Amanda moved to Atlanta in January 2015 to accept an internship at CNN with the iReport team. She is looking forward to this new adventure and being able to gain skills in digital media, news gathering, and web producing.

 

She previously worked at KRIS Communications in Corpus Christi. Amanda started as a camera operator/editor and was promoted to Web Content/Social Media Producer for the KRIS6 Sunrise Show in January 2014.

 

Amanda is fascinated by the way people now consume news through social media. She is looking forward to learning and growing in the media industry.

 

In her spare time, between work and class, she loves the beach and taking her pug, Baby Girl, out for adventures.

 

Feel free to message her with any story ideas or to just say hi.

 

Please say hello to Amanda in the comments below! We are so happy to have her as part of the team.

Welcome to the iReporters´ community! I have seen you have vetted a sunset photo taken in California. The photo was very good indeed. But I have a question. I am happy if you could answer. I have a problem. I have posted for CNN iReport several sunset photos from Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Tunisia but no one have been vetted. What should i do to get my sunset photos vetted?

Hello,

 

I have a thought on the scott killing and why He ran.

 

I don't think this has been thought about.  When the patrolman stopped scott, The patrolman was playing really loud music.  I wonder if scott heard that music the patrolman was playing "really loud"

 

This is what might have scared Scott and made him run. 

Listen to the lyrics, and see what you would have thought if you were black and pulled over.

this comment is for Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper. I do not know how to contact:

Please, please tell me why so many of you celebrities are complimenting the mom for beating her 16 year old son in Baltimore, but none, not one of you are offering counseling to the young man or at least offering a college scholarship or mentoring program to the young man. I agree with everyone else that she should protect her son, but even when a child dies at most schools some form of counseling is provided. As adults, we can express our displeasure with the system and police, but how do we help the young people at home who hears us complain? That is our way of release, but they have none.

IAM EXPOSING THE TRUTH FOR JUSTICE!

MY ORDEAL IN THE HANDS OF UNITED STATES SECRET AGENTS.

New York, NY – I, Daniel Barani hereby institute a legal action against Mr. John Fiore, Joseph Tremenia, Rick Borgia, Michael Franzoni & ors., employees of FBI, CIA, DOD and DHS for the violation of my civil liberties right. For the past eleven years, I have suffered the effects of physical torture and abuse unjustly meted out to me by the named security agents. As a matter of fact, I was falsely accused of being a terrorist and wrongfully detained because I am Kurdish. Indeed, I was arbitrarily tortured, surreptitiously searched, physically beaten and incarcerated in a maximum security without any due process or justifiable warrant. However, I was never charged with any offence and when I instituted a legal action against the perpetrators of this capricious act meted out to me, my case was denied and dismissed as a matter of so-called "national security."

To this day, I have been constantly threatened not to speak out but I refused to be gagged. The extent of damage done to me mentally, physically, emotionally and psychologically has continued to lead my life on a downward spiral of instability. The world need to hear and know the truth as I seek justice concerning this matter because it happened to me, . . . who knows how many people out there like me suffering innocently and being silenced with gag-orders in violation of their constitutional rights. As I speak to you right now, my phone is being bugged and my house kept under 24-hour surveillance in order to supress me from revealing the truth. Even while I was incarcerated, my foods and drinks were surreptitiously laced with a prohibited drug known as lysergic acid diethylamide (CIA CODE NAME: LSD- MK-ULTRA) which the perpetrators used for mind control experiments and manipulations towards their targets (like me) who are profiled as terrorists. As such, I am being monitored and kept under surveillance 24/7 through the micro chip that was illegally implanted in my left hand by the named agents.

As a result, my health has been degenerating as I continue to suffer multiple forms of harassments, threats and oppression from the named agents insisting that they will destroy my life in order to hide the truth. Without mixing words, I hereby call and seek for the unwavering support of the Press, Human rights organizations especially the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and all citizens of good will to expose the despicable and illegal acts of these public officials to the whole world. I am a living victim - All I want is for these culprits to be brought to Justice! I have already briefed my Attorney and he will be releasing the court summons soon.

I’ve already filled my lawsuits at White Plains Courthouse on 21st of April 2015. I would greatly appreciate the strong support and assistance of the media towards achieving my cause. .And now today I’ve heard they are dismissing my case.

Please review my press release for further detail: medan989tb.wordpress.com                                                                               

CALL OR EMAIL: (347)510-7340 Email: medan989tb@gmail.com and this home address 401 West 152nd Street, Apt 2B New York, NY 10031. I am available between 1pm and 3pm.

Hi amanda,

I have a video about ISIS named "ISIS a New Terrorism" it's a political anaslysis of the situation combined with the effect of oil prices in one hundred years and how politics and how they affected each other and also the terrorism and now appeared a new kind of terrorism owns the oil and controlling the market instead of balckmaling the leaders specially in the middle east.

My question how to post this video and the other question what is the compensation ?

Welcome to the CNN family Amanda.I wish you an awesome summer. I have an idea about helping the FBI track potential ISUL recruits. Why don't the FBI just hire a bunch of teenager computer whiz's, pay them a little something to search and keep an eye on all the social media's for people that may be talking to ISUL?  This would give the FBI the manpower they need to hopefully catch a lot of wannabe's.

The Patriot Act may be compromised, but how about what is going on State wise.    For the last 5 years, the Sheriff of Hillsborough County Florida has been using unions, mobsters, Masons etc to follow and harass me.  I have collected enough on my computer.  I've been sitting at my computer and was actually being told what I was wearing, if I had shaved, and other harassing conversation.   My computer and video screen has no camera connected.  So what if the feds stop using the Patriot as in the past if the State Officials are doing it.

As such, I am being monitored and kept under surveillance 24/7 through the micro chip that was illegally injected in my both arms by the named agents.

 

 

The Defendants personnel hired many thugs to violate, attack and cause bodily harm to me. In the course of their duties they intentionally selected and falsely

profiled me as a terrorist because of the 9/11 hysteria based on their bias opinion. A discriminatory act due to my ethnic status “Nationally of Origin.” They then secretly injected a microchip in both arms in order to monitor and begin experimenting with mind control drugs on me. Putting me under surveillance 24/7 and abusing me to the bone still. Every night I have horrific nightmares due to their experiments. The microchips burn like a torch, the intensity of this extreme sensation that will not let up is almost too much to handle. There is humiliation every night when I eat or drink. All is displayed and deeply disturbing. I am asking, please, how one could be so fucking cowardly and grimy to be able to do all that’s been done to me?

 

 

As a result, my health has been degenerating as I continue to suffer multiple forms of harassments, threats and oppression from the named agents insisting that they will destroy my life in order to hide the truth.

My comment is the following: I truly believe that Donald Trump is in danger.  I believe Mr. Trump is in danger from El chapo and the mexican government. The mexican government is truly corrupt. The Republican Party instead of ridiculing Mr. Trump should support him. I am an independent voter. I will vote for the human being that I believe is best for the position to be president of the USA, this great country. I will not vote for Mr. Trump,I think Mr. Trump still needs more experience.  But I truly believe that Mr. Trump is in danger.Republicans, Democrats, Independents should protect all the citizens of this great country from Mexico government and El Chapo, bad bad people they are.

Welcome Amanda, Hope I can create some interest in the Manatee County, Florida. We have a dog here named Padi who has been impounded for protecting itself from a unsupervised child and is facing death due to Manatee counties interpretation of state law. Of the 68 counties Manatee  has its own version of the state law which is written the same for all counties. The dogs face book page is "FREE Padi". The county commision has given all concerned lip service claiming they cant do anything on the advice of their attorney.  Please give Padi and her family along with the government of manatee county the visiblity Padi needs to save her life

This to me is insulting to the viewer!

THIS LETTER IS ACTUALLY FOR DON LEMON.I JUST CANNOT FIND AN AVENEW TO CONTACT HIM. AND I NEED TO BE HEARD.

 

 

 

THE RECENT SHOOTINGS OF THE REORTER IN VIRGINA WAS TRULY A PREVENTABLE TRAGEDY.  EVERY SINCE THE STATES WON THE CIVIL WAR THEIR HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST LIE PERPETUATED IN THE HISTORY OF MAN "BLACK PEOPLE ARE FREE" IF YOU ARE TREATED AS A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN BY A QUESTIONABLE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY. THEN YOU ARE OT ACTUALLY NOT FREE.AS A 66 EAR OLD WHITE MALE WHO ACTUALLY HAS NO WHITE FRIENDS, BASED ON TE FACT I CAN'T TRUST THEM. AND THAT IS SAD.

LIKE IN THE CASE OF THIS REPORTER HER BOSS AND CO-WORKERS HAVE HER WALKING ON WATER.SO HONESTLY IN THE DEFENSE OF MR. FLANAGAN HE HAD NO WHERE TO TURN,  GO TO THE BOSS  ON A WHITE GIRL YOU COULD BE CORRECT  BUT THEY WIL NOT LISTEN TO THE TRUTH.  I BY NO MEANS CONDONE WHAT HE DID. BUT IF WHAT MR. FLANAGAN WAS IN FACT TRUE. THEN IT WAS IN FACT THE STUPIDITY OF WHITE SOCIETY THAT LED TO THIS TRAGEDY. LINCOLN IS FALSLY GIVEN CREDIT FOR FREEING THE SLAVES.  HOWEVER THERE WAS NEVER A MANDATE OR PROCLIMATIN  PRESENTED THAT SAID THE SLAVES ARE NOW.

FREE. AND IN FACT THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN FREE.EVERYONE HAS TREATED BLACK PEOPLE AS 2ND CLASS CITIZENS.  IN A WORD IS DISGUSTING.THE ONLY WAY THAT WE ARE GOIG TO CORRECT THIS INHUMANITY TO MAN IS THAT WHITE FOLKS NEED TO LEARN THAT THEIR IN DEFIANCE TO THE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE AND GOD. AND TO DEFY GOD AND MISTREET HIS CHILDREN IS A "SIN"

I think you may be in the wrong television channel or what is called CNN, other than that I wish you the best of luck!

 

I have been watching CNN since its early days, it was my favorite channel for news and serious journalism. It is so sad to turn to CNN this days..."BREAKING NEWS Donald Trump will speak shortly" "LIVE: Donald Trump speaking form here, from there, from everywhere...

CNN love affair with Donald Trump is so intense that I believe CNN should change it's name to: DTN, yes, I know it doesn't sound so nice but who cares right? since you have all the time and for Mr. Trump so just call it "Donald Trump Network", he will thank you for the polls!! But I will not.

Good bye CNN, you just lost a loyal viewer.

My rave:

I am a Canadian, I am not a politician, no one important, just a guy but I am getting sick and tired of a man who is running for President of the USA, and that man is Mr. Donald Trump.

Why am I so upset with this man? The truth he reminds me of a man who was very famous in history some 70 - 80 years ago. This man started a hatred for one nation, brought in segregation, branding or if you prefer a numbering system for this nation and then started to systematically and brutally kill them all.

This man at first looked like a great strong leader; he looked like he would take his country far. His lust for power and fame took him down a road that many followed with a blind faith. Many lost their lives because of one mans crazed mind.

His name was Adolf Hitler. I know that comparing Hitler to Trump will get many people angry, and I am sorry; but in my opinion, there is not much difference between the two especially with how Mr. Trump is promoting hatred towards a religion that is peaceful.

I am a Christian, I have no hatred towards Jews, Muslims, black/white/grey or pink people. Would I love it if everyone was a Christian? YES! But if they are not will I hate them? NO!!!! It does not matter the color of the persons skin, religion or if you have showered today or not. One of my best friends is a Christian, but if you looked at him you would think he was a Muslim. So, we have white Muslims, black Muslims and interracial Muslims how do you pick who is numbered, who is allowed to travel and who is not? Who is permitted into the USA and who gets kicked out?

Mr. Trump is not just against Muslims though, he wants what Hitler wanted, give him blonde blue eyed Americans. No more Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, African Americans, Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, Filipinos and so many others. Yet these are the people who for the most part are doing the work that many Americans do not want to do and is needed in this industrialized nation. Many others are well respected business men and women, Lawyers, Doctors and Politicians. When you start down this road where do you stop? My mother was Irish, and my Father was Scottish, am I a chosen one? What happens to me if I am not? What happens to you? Will your family history be blonde enough to satisfy this crazy man, are your eyes blue enough? You had better hope so if he is elected!

¨I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all¨.

One nation under God, INDIVISIBLE, with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL! This is not a nation that Donald Trump is a part of, or should ever be elected to as a leader. Everything about him strives to tear the USA apart. Unless of course that USA is all blue eyed and blonde.

Does the USA need a leader with better business sense? YES. Is it Mr. Donald Trump? NO. In this time of great unrest, the USA needs to elect a leader who is calm in the face of trouble, not one who spits out hatred and dissension. If he is elected, watch out because coming to a country close to you is World War III.

Donny, listen to the people of Great Briton. Hopefully the new young Mr. Trudeau, will have cojones big enough to tell you that you are not allowed into Canada either. But then please do not let me started on Trudeau.
