Sarah Jones is an American multimedia journalist currently working for an NBC affiliate in the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois. Prior to that she has worked with BBC World Service, CNN and Al Jazeera America, among others. In South Sudan, Sarah’s work focused on stories that flipped the script on Western reporting from the country, showing that South Sudanese could be the protagonists and heroes of their own stories, not just the victims. I talked to her about why she wanted to report from Juba in particular, and the kinds of stories she was looking for there.
