Rossalyn was a 2018 Ochberg Fellow at Columbia Journalism School. In 2017, Forbes named Rossalyn '30 Under 30' in media in Europe. Her investigation into British tabloid exploitation of mothers in poverty was nominated for a 2017 Orwell Prize, and her interactive WhatsApp conversation with a refugee was nominated for a British Journalism Award. Her work has been used by CNN to grill Donald Trump about his ‘Muslim ban’ and condemned as “fake news" by the Burundi government.
She 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 for her coverage of Europe's refugee crisis. She was also shortlisted for the Gaby Rado Award for best new journalist by Amnesty International in 2016.
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 United Nations Foundation that same year.
Rossalyn is British, and she once lived in New York. She's reported from natural disaster sites, domestic violence refuges, rescue boats, terror attack scenes, refugee camps, migration routes, borders, and political protests, from across Latin America, Europe, and Africa. She's been awarded a grant and fellowship by International Women's Media Foundation, a grant by the European Journalism Centre, and is HEFAT trained.
She doesn't normally refer to herself in third person, and she still doesn't have a decent headshot.
