Hello, I’m Phoebe Parke – an English and German speaking journalist with a nose for a good story (or so I’m told.)
I currently work as a social media producer for CNN Africa, here I write stories for the website, manage and grow the social accounts and run social media campaigns, you can see everything I’ve written for CNN and other online publications in my portfolio.
I’ve been writing online since 2011 (that’s what LinkedIn says anyway) and over those five years I’ve written for The Daily Telegraph, Huffington Post, Flavour Magazine, DivaScribe Magazine, Pappzd Magazine, GRM Daily, Pride Magazine, FAB Magazine, Black Beauty and Hair Magazine, MTV Wrap Up, SB.TV and Pause Magazine.
I’m also one of four hosts of The Receipts Podcast — a weekly podcast fronted by four girls from London who are willing to talk about anything and everything, it’s real unfiltered girl talk.
After 3 years of blogging, in 2015, I decided to do something to help the blogging community. So I created Bloggers of Colour, an online community that shares work from bloggers and writers of colour and supports their work. You can find out more about what we do on our website and find out the full story behind why I started it in this blog post.
Hopefully you’ve made it to the bottom of this page, and so thank you for reading.
