    Dear Ms. Stephy Burnett:

    I am writing this email to express my keen interests in setting up interviews with you and your colleagues on the data journalism practices in your newsroom during the upcoming IJAsia Conference in Nepal. We are from the Dyclub Data Media Lab at School of Journalism and Communication at Wuhan University, China. We are the first data journalism media lab in China and we hope to bring the advanced data journalism experiences around the world back to China. From September 23 to 25, we were invited to present during the conference, and right after the conference, we hope to interview a number of Asian media which excel at data journalism reporting. We believe that your newsroom is leading the industry in this aspect and would love to talk more on this topic with you.

    we will likely ask during the interviews. Please let me know if you are interested. Look forward to meeting and talking with you soon in Kathmandu.

    Thanks so much!
