    Freelance writer in Cairo trying to make contact with appropriate editor

    Good morning,

    My name is Amrou Kotb and I am an Egyptian American freelance writer who is currently based in Cairo. I have been here since January and have had stories and opinion pieces published in outlets such as CNN, Al Jazeera America, and the Atlantic Council. I have also gained work experience at international digital wire Ahram Online, where I was able to develop a strong network of relevant contacts here.

    I will receive my Master of Arts in International Relations and Master of Public Administration from Syracuse University (currently completing a semester abroad) this May and am planning to continue to do freelance journalism. I would like to speak with an editor at CNN regarding such opportunities and am having difficulty finding the appropriate contact so I am sharing my story wherever I can. Please send me an email so that I may share my recent work with you. I have attached a recent picture I took on Mohamed Mahmoud Street just so that I may be able to submit my story.

    I look forward to hearing from someone soon.


    Amrou Kotb
