This iReport is part of an assignment:
Tell us the Good Stuff!
Syed in New York
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Syed found me on Twitter (@alexpreditor) while looking for #nyc related posts. He we was very excited to do a video about his 34 hour journey here as well as his trip once he landed.
Syed shot on his iPhone 5 throughout Islamabad, Abu Dhabi and Manchester. I shot on a Panasonic HVX200 once he arrived in New York City.
Syed was inspired to become a humanitarian activist after the 2005 Kashmir earthquake.
It was amazing to meet someone the same age with the same interests from halfway around the world who I had first connected with on social media.
