I am a freelance journalist and editor...

..with a portfolio of impactful and original content spanning topics from the gender pay gap to mental health to sex work decriminalisation to Japan’s penal system.

This is because I love stories, and nothing gives me more satisfaction than coming across diverse people, places or ideas that deserve more attention, and turning them into fascinating reads.

I’m also a natural storyteller, and consider it a huge privilege to tell other people's stories too.

I take this very seriously and am often thanked by my interviewees, such as Shrouk El-Attar – engineer, activist and all-round amazing human – who said I was the first journalist to so accurately capture her personality.

Over my decade-long career I’ve had a lot of practise adapting copy to suit any kind of readership, from the FT to BuzzFeed, and interviewed people from all walks of life.

There are a few areas that particularly pique my interest, such as family and gender issues. As editor of everywoman.com, I was able to constantly seek out fascinating women’s stories, from Sharmadean Reid MBE to former leader of the WEP, Sophie Walker.

Lastly I’m thorough. Very thorough. I trained as a sub-editor so my copy is always clean, factually accurate and delivered on time. Just one reason editors like working with me.

That’s me, in a nutshell. To read more of my work, please head to my Interviews or Features Portfolio, or get in touch.

    Cherry is a reliable and intuitive journalist. She files clean, engaging copy to deadline and takes direction very well. A pleasure to work with.
