Welcome! I’m Cheryl, the founder and editor-in-chief of The Cherie Bomb, an online magazine focusing on original stories that showcase unique and progressive insights on culture, society and politics, while featuring cutting-edge articles about science, music, fashion, style and decor.
As a UC Berkeley alum, with degrees in women’s studies and journalism, my passions are women’s and girls’ rights, especially in developing countries, how international politics affect women and girls, and how my news writing about these issues attempts to inform and engage the public in embracing the advocacy for female rights and equality.
Away from The Cherie Bomb, I am writer, editor, copywriter and ghostwriter. I call myself a Word Coder because, although I don’t code in the traditional way, my writing—my words— have proven to rank highly with Google’s search algorithm and SEO that seeks out high-value, non-profit, useful, informative, focused content that is comprised of original, unique, quality writing.
In my day job, I write for personal brands, company websites, social media accounts, marketing campaigns, press releases, newsletters, promotional blog and informational articles, marketing collateral and more. My specialty as a content provider is constructing a brand image coupled with a unique, cool, sophisticated voice for my clients to expand their visibility and online presence in their respective markets.
I am also a published journalist, magazine feature writer and news editor. As a reporter, I wrote about both local and geo-political social justice struggles for KPFK 90.7 evening news radio broadcast in Los Angeles.
Right after college, I got the chance to edit the writing of Hillary Clinton at a syndication and editing company in Los Angeles. Soon after, I decided to jump headfirst into politics, having the fortunate opportunity to work with national and international political leaders and heads of state, with a specific focus on the status of women in Los Angeles. My time working for a Hollywood movie studio gave me an inside look at the inner-workings of the entertainment industry, while working side by side with the some of the most influential and talented people in the business.
All of my career experiences have helped color and expand my worldview, giving me an informed and dynamic understanding of our shared global society that you see reflected on The Cherie Bomb. But as the saying goes, in life we always return to our first love. For me, that is being a writer.
Many thanks to all of the readers from around the world who’ve taken the time to view The Cherie Bomb. Every time I look at the globe tracker, I’m floored. I am very grateful and love to hear your feedback.
