About Sophie Mei Lan

From the pain of being unheard to discovering her purpose that all voices are heard.

Sparkle Communications (Community Media CIC) is run by multi-award-winning journalist Sophie Mei Lan who has made documentaries for Channel 4 News, ITV News, and BBC as well as crafting viral multimedia content for brands and ‘Scoop of the Year’ stories for the media.

She has also created IRN short-listed commercial radio news exclusives for national and local radio. A community-campaigner turned journalist, Sophie works with seldom-heard communities, creating online platforms for unheard voices. This has led to social entrepreneur projects, publishing a range of magazines and now a full-on Community Interest Company. 

Sophie has worked for and trained extensively with the likes of Daily Mirror, BBC News, and grassroots newspapers which have given her a deep understanding of the media industry. Working from the heart of communities in the mainstream media, Sophie saw the gap between grassroots stories and the wider media industry. Sophie set about creating an enterprise that acts as a synergy between the two.   She believes that the media industry could be the key to driving positive change in the world if it could better connect with underrepresented communities working from the bottom-up.

After finding her own voice while developing a range of mental health, wellbeing, and creative communities online through her brands, she set about training others to share their own stories as well as enabling them to access a range of publications and media outlets to tell their story in the most powerful way.
