Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
Dear Sir,

I am a TV journalist based in Dubai.
I have more than seven years of media experience including five years as TV News Journalist in Dubai. I have recently obtained Freelance license from Dubai Media City. I work as News correspondent for various TV along with producing documentaries..

I am also in the process of learning Arabic to further my reach in the Gulf region.

As Journalist and Producer, I have produced news documentaries. I have also produced and directed several news shows - both Live (including Breaking News) and Recorded - in Pakistan and Dubai. The shows have mostly featured prominent personalities from around the world.

During this job, I have been involved in writing script, doing research and providing other editorial support.

I have also been responsible for promoting my shows and help the marketing team get sponsors.

As a local business reporter and journalist I have built a strong network both amongst communities and at official levels. This has helped me deliver exclusive stories from across the subcontinent and the Middle East .

I have been working at the Dubai Media City since 2003 and have the contacts and understanding of the industry in Dubai . I am a Pakistani married to an Indian journalist and we have witnessed the region's media industry evolve in recent years.

Welcome to World Pulse. I

Welcome to World Pulse.

I used to live in the Emirates a few years ago. I really miss it. It was a great place. I was in Al-Ain, but I used to go to Dubai every weekend. How is it now? I was told it's expanding and growing on a daily basis. Good luck with your Arabic! The best advice I have for you is "practice". You are lucky you live in an Arabic-speaking country, you have a chance to talk to people and improve your language skills.

Also, I'm looking forward to see you make your own documentaries!

World Pulser Lizzy @
http://www.worldpulse.com/node/11020 told me about a grant for aspiring film-makers.

This is more information about it.

-It's dedicated to the memory of her friend:- He runs the Boulder Adventure Film Festival in Colorado, USA. His friends and family have raised a significant amount of money in his name. It will be used to create an endowment that will fund an ongoing grant for aspiring filmmakers.

Welcome

We are so happy to have a journalist from the Middle East join our community. I am very interested in your views about the Iranian elections being so close to Iran. What are the perspectives of the people on the ground?

I would like to extend an invitation to join a PulseWire group called "The Iran Café," and provide the details of the election and protests that you wont find in the mainstream media. This group provides a collaborative and safe discussion forum for you to share your thoughts, ideas, and emotions surrounding Iran. By contributing to this group, you have the opportunity to be featured in our next print edition. The next print edition, to be released this summer, will feature a Frontline Journal article spotlighting Iran, and will include a link to The Iran Café on PulseWire for readers and supporters to further the dialogue. If we do use any of your words in our publications, we will first contact you for approval.

To join this group, please visit http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups/10185 and click "Join this group."

Again, welcome and I look forward to reading more from you.
Janice Wong
PulseWire Community Director

Amna,
Your perspective will be invaluable on Pulsewire. I hope that you can become a regular contributor to Pulsewire keeping us abreast of news in the middle east. Being from Pakistan, husband from India, living in Dubai, learning Arabic- you are wealth of information and intelligence.

We welcome you to this vibrant community.

Best,
Laura
