Copywriter, Content Writer, Publications Editor for Non Profit Organisations

Location icon Germany

I care about women's rights and vulnerable children, particularly girl's access to education in developing countries. This is why I worked for UNICEF UK. I want to talk about why access to a toilet cubicle with a door, for example, affects girls' schooling and why educating girls has a ripple effect on society as a whole. I want to inform the general public, and persuade them to fundraise and campaign for, amongst other things, safe learning environments. This is also why I have researched, written and published articles on gender equality on LinkedIn. I want to get people fired up and to show how donating your time or skills to a women's organisation can make a massive difference to someone's life.

I am passionate about protecting non human primates and their habitats, specifically gorillas and orangutans. I have my own Twitter account @metal_monkey_ to spread awareness about laboratory tests, poaching and palm oil, and to share news articles and research in the field.

Alongside UNICEF UK, I have worked for Singapore Red Cross, The Princess Royal Trust for Carers, and Expatgiving.

I write and edit copy, and produce cross-channel publications to target policy makers, fundraisers, volunteers, campaigners, children, teachers, and the general public. These include magazines, fundraising packs, student handbooks, promotional leaflets, awareness-raising materials, brands guidelines and annual reviews.

I produce content strategies, respect political sensitivities, and can be counted on for identifying cross-selling opportunities to increase audience engagement and raise the brand profile.

The text supplied for this project was provided by a number of team members. In some cases, it required a complete rewrite to separate it into sections,...

Women: the ongoing struggle for equal rights

As a borderline Generation Xer with a university education, who wasn't forced into marriage, chose when to become a mother, is in good health and was encouraged to do any job I wanted, I could be forgiven (and I am sure that I am not alone) in somewhat naively thinking that women's equality had more

Could you be a blood hero?

Last week, millions of people across the world took an hour out of their day, overcame their fears, and let a stranger stick a needle into their vein. In doing so, these people were helping to save a...

Volunteering: it's a family affair

As parents, we want to raise responsible and empathic adults who will think of the environment around them and the people in it, who will overcome struggles and strive to be the best they can be, and who will, ultimately, be emotionally and physically happy and healthy.
