Rossalyn Warren is an award-winning foreign affairs journalist. Her reporting has been published in The New York Times, Washington Post, Guardian, BuzzFeed News, VICE, CNN, BBC, ELLE and Teen Vogue, among other places. She was previously a senior news reporter for BuzzFeed News in London.
She's reported from 15 countries across Latin America, Europe, and Africa, covering mostly women’s rights and gender-based violence, but also migration, the far-right, Internet culture, and humanitarian crises. Her investigation into the exploitation of poverty-stricken mothers was nominated for an Orwell Prize, and her interactive WhatsApp conversation with a refugee was nominated for a British Journalism Award. Her reporting has been used by CNN to grill Donald Trump about his ‘Muslim ban’, and condemned as “fake news" by the Burundi government.
Rossalyn was named news reporter of the year at the 2016 Words By Women Awards, and she was shortlisted for new journalist of the year at the 2015 British Journalism Awards. She was also shortlisted for the Gaby Rado Award for best new journalist by Amnesty International in 2016. In 2017, Forbes named Rossalyn '30 Under 30' in media in Europe.
Following her leading coverage of online harassment for BuzzFeed News, she published a digital book on the issue, Targeted and Trolled: The Reality of Being A Woman Online, with Penguin in 2015. She was a Press Fellow for the UN Foundation that same year.
