Ms Afrah Phleem

Social Editor, Yemen Observer newspaper, Yemen

I hold BA degree in English Studies from Sana’a University, Yemen and Fellowship Certification from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Danida in Denmark. I’ve been working as a journalist for almost three years and I have the post of social editor in Yemen Observer newspaper. I’m also a writer for several publications in Yemen and Kuwait. I write in English and Arabic.

Mainly, I’m an activist. I’m a member in the White Ribbon Alliance and the National Safe Motherhood Alliance in Yemen. Journalism has allowed me to be deeply aware about humanitarian issues and I strongly believe that good journalism can make a difference.
