I write about both topics, and more on my personal blog Salt & Caramel, and for various publications. I offer my professional services in copywriting, and in website and content creation. Having lived for many years in Germany, I speak fluent German, and undertake translation work (German/English).
My approach to teaching families about social media is to celebrate social media, rather than to demonise it. I help parents recognise social networking sites as fantastic tools, which can promote self-esteem in children, and help young people in their personal and professional development.
With such fast moving technology, no one can ever say they know everything, as new apps arise all the time, so I don’t believe that parents need to know the ins and outs of every new app that comes along, although it is helpful to know the basics of how to keep their children safe of social media.
I have a particular interest in the rights of women and children, and I strongly believe in the rights of children to be heard, and for their privacy to respected.
In 2012, I launched Jump! Mag, an online magazine for kids, aimed at children from 8 to 12 years. Jump! Mag has a significant following around the world, and have featured contributions from children from every continent.
In 2014 Jump! Mag books was launched, a collaboration with other writers to produce print and eBooks for tweens and teens, featuring strong female characters and designed to inspire young girls.
In June 2012, I travelled to Kenya with the Gates Foundation to blog about reproductive rights. I have contributed to the Gates Foundation blog, Impatient Optimists.
