Inspiring Egyptian Citizen Journalist

Sondos Shabayek (from The Hindu Business Line)

The Hindu Business Line has a profile of 25-year-old Sondos Shabayek, who started out as a citizen journalist during the Egypt uprising and is now editor-in-chief of an Arabic youth magazine. The article is a good read on the changing atmosphere for women and journalism in Egypt.

    Hi, very interesting article, a young woman’s point of view is invaluable. I represent Citizenside, the largest network of citizen journalists in the world. We collect and publish eyewitness photos and videos from the people living the news. (You can find out more on our website.) We spread the photos and videos we receive to thousands of daily visitors and thousands of media clients, who can license the reports and spread the news still further.

    As the situation in Egypt is still delicate, it’s all the more important to get the news out to as many people as possible. Our editorial team is constantly scouring the web looking for people who could join us and upload media to share with the world. If you or any of your community in Egypt would like to help spread the word and show people what’s happening there, I invite you to join our network and share your photos with us. Thank-you and keep up the good work!
